From Magnificat

…….”The capacity to desire is the meaning of daily life, the power that gives the will to build, to be able to see and resolve your problems and those of others, of the individual and of society. We are made not for limited values, for merely material realities, but for the infinite for the infinite things, with satiety in material things, IF WE REJECT HEALTHY TOIL, the beauty of sacrifice that enables us to have within a free and welcoming space to receive and to strive in the desire of the Absolute, the result is nausea, apathy, and the senselessness that arouses on cynicism and desperation and even perversion of nature in the search for new emotions. Truly this is the root of the evils of our time and of the lack of orientation, of meaning, of gusto in life, of awareness of the value and dignity of the person……” By Mother Maria Geltruce Arioli, OSB,she is the prioress of the Monastery of Saint Benedict in Milan, Italy.
