De vultu tuo (Ps 17:2)


Let us seek the face of Christ. We know that it is possible to find him and to abide in him. The Lord can be found only if we live in justice and pray ardently from our lips, without deceiving. Our Lord wants to be with us and in our hearts. However, it depends on us whether our thoughts are pure.
The Holy Spirit can act through us when our souls are clean. For this reason, as fragile and weak human beings, we should very often ask for forgiveness and God's grace. We are unable to sanctify ourselves on our own.
Therefore, day by day, we cry to the Lord who answers us. Although our prayers are not always correct, we do not give up. We pray the Lord to incline his ear and to kindly look upon us. Moreover, we believe that he can offer us his blessings and mercy.
As the Lord's followers, we flee from our foes under and find shelter under his divine protection. We hide ourselves in the shadow of his arms. We are always accepted as his beloved friends and satisfied in his presence.
