Are we not perhaps all afraid in some way? If
we let Christ enter fully into our lives, if we open ourselves totally
to him, are we not afraid that he might take something away from us?
Are we not perhaps afraid to give up something significant, something
unique, something that makes life so beautiful? Do we not then risk
ending up diminished and deprived of our freedom? No! If we let Christ
into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what
makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are
the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great
potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do
we experience beauty and liberation. Do not be afraid of Christ! He
takes nothing away, and he gives you everything.
