Your aspiration is to follow the Risen Christ. By what sign can you recognize that you have encountered him? When, as you come closer to him, your inner combats do not harden you but lead you closer to the very wellspring of his love.

In this inner revolution, all that could have broken the fibers of the soul, feelings of uselessness, lonliness, no longer block the path. And a way forward takes shape: it always leads from worries toward trusting in God.

-Brother Roger of Taize
