Jesus, beloved Son of the Father, we praise you for the Love that your Sacred Heart reveals to us. Transfixed for us, it has become a Fountain of joy and Source of eternal life. Jesus, the invocation of your Name pacifies us and keeps us in Hope.
It is true. I stand at the door of your heart, day and night. Even when you are not listening, even when you doubt it could be Me, I am there. I await even the smallest sign of your response, even the least whispered invitation that will allow Me to enter.
Oh Lord of my soul, What a good friend you make! You, the all-powerful, You can do everything, as soon as you want to! No, you never cease loving those who love you!
Now I love you alone; I follow only you; I seek only you; I am prepared to serve only you, because only you govern justly; I desire to be under your authority.
Who are you, sweet light, that fills me And illumines the darkness of my heart? You lead me like a mother's hand, And should you let go of me, I would not know how to take another step.
Spirit of the risen Christ, Holy Spirit, If only we knew how to ask You to pray as we should! Instead the stuttering of our prayers pass through the crucible of our poverty, Our little faith.

God so loved the world that he gave it what he prized the most, his only Son. The latter did not come to judge us, but to save us. All that must surely have greatly surprised Nicodemus: a God who wants to neither judge nor punish, but wants to save us, out of love for us and for all men!
Christianity is different from other religions, because at the very beginning, there is a fact, a person, an historic experience: Abraham's experience of faith; the Exodus and, above all, what happened during the week that we call "holy," Christ's Passion, his death on the cross, his descent into the tomb and resurrection on the third day.
