carried out by a Christian, a Catholic nun, and- above all- by a fellow human being. The simplicity of the truth of the Gospel’s message is once again shown through the words of the Last Judgement: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (Matthew 25:35-36). As long as you do that, blessed are you! And to all those who do not do, you will be judged unworthy of that Kingdom of God. There are no big theological or philosophical questions. Just the test of fraternal love, motivated by the love of Jesus. Love is our mission. Since God is love, those who abide in God will communicate and live that love; this love that is God. Love is life-giving. The Salvation promised by Jesus is the fullness of divine life. And how sweet is this way! To enable others to participate and share that Divine Love- that life in its fullness- is the mission of every Christian, of every human being. As Christians, Divine Love in its perfection is the Incarnate Son of God. This means giving and living in Jesus; the Way, the Truth and the Life. Our mission. 37
