Extracts from spiritual talks ( 21.07.2007 )

Serving other people has a saving power which is much greater than any theoretical theology whatsoever.


How can we know God as He is? Christ has shown us the way, asking us to dwell in holiness so as not to harm anyone else, to prefer others to ourselves, and not to struggle to lord it over them.


We must die to ourselves so that others may live. As Christ said: ‘Do not be afraid to lose your life in this service’. He who serves others saves his soul for eternal life.
