Be Guided by Your Heart Through God's Tender Love

"The Epiphany shows to us God who in turn is on pilgrimage, a pilgrimage to man. There is not only the pilgrimage of man towards God; God himself has set out towards us: who is Jesus, in fact, if not God who has, so to speak, come out of himself to meet humanity? It was out of love that he made himself history in our history; out of love that he came to bring us the seed of new life (cf. Jn 3:3-6) and sow it in the furrows of our earth so that it might sprout, flower and bear fruit."Pope Benedict XVI

We possess in our hearts the yearning for truth, wisdom, and beauty. These are not subjective in the sense that the Spirit emanates from within and is answered by our own being. God is a beacon, a star that can be viewed from afar, from every angle, and every corner of the universe, by everyone who is journeying. The story of God's love for man surpasses any and all human drama. It is mysterious yet wonderful, awe inspiring, yet simplistic, more than enough to make you tremble, yet tender, kind and light; for Jesus says his yoke is easy and his burden light. Do not be distracted by the the things of the world that are not from God. Look to the star and be guided by your heart through God's tender love.
