Only If on the horizon there is a goal that puts everything in its place, that reward the good, that punishes the bad, that purify and rescues the repentant, life will have its full meaning.
The aspiration to a definitive goal is linked to the belief in a God that welcomes every human being, that allows the complete triumph of good, that rescues those who have suffered so many and so many injustices.
Looking toward the goal and accepting the judgment of God leads us to rethink provisional options that we discover as wrong, useless, even unjust and sinful.
At the same time, it impels us to sharpen the mind and the heart to open ourselves to mercy, to justice, to the truth, to beauty, to the love that gives meaning to every stage and decision of our way.
