“Defeat is transformed into victory. Death is destroyed by death. Fear is swallowed up by joy. Darkness gives way to light. Suffering becomes a way to Christ. Such, for us, is the meaning of the Church, and one cannot escape it. I do not know what each one of us is to do in the light of what has been said, but God Himself reveals to each one of us what He expects from us. Through the biblical “still, small voice” we as Christians must rediscover our faith and recover our true vocation.”
