We live without denying the times that have spread over the world the gloomy veil of uncertainty, helplessness and the horror of death. Believe it or not, we are living in those days long warned by the Bible, in which man’s mind will fall asleep and the divine spirit in him will be extinguished. We are therefore very close to the moment when we will be judged by the Godhead for all our iniquities.
And yet, now that the history of a captive world in pseudo-happiness is preparing to draw its last curtain, a cry of hope transcends space and time echoing in the terrible spiritual night that has soaked its soot everywhere and all over. It is the warm voice of the Savior of the world, of the Lord Jesus Christ who calls us by name today, because He wants to be close to us, to listen to our pain and to encourage us even if everyone else has left us.
‘Come to me,’ said the Savior of the world in long-forgotten times; ‘Come, all you who are toiling and burdened, and I will give rest to your souls.’
‘Come, for the time of grace is at hand.’ God calls us today, uttering the same gentle words that encourage us, comforting our battered and bruised bodies under the severe blows of life’s troubles!
Wherever you are, turn your face to Him by trusting in the strong and powerful hand of God, choosing to dedicate your life exclusively to Him, not forgetting that He was, is, and will always be ready for you. Shield as much as possible Reward.
