Easter 2022 – Letter of the Coordinator  (16.04.2022)

Jesus is God-made-man like each of us, and he expresses himself like a man but with the strength of his divinity. Instead, when is the identity of Jesus solemnly proclaimed in the Gospel? When the centurion says: “Truly he was the Son of God”. That is when it is said, as soon as he has given his life on the Cross, because one can no longer be mistaken: one can see that God is omnipotent in love and in no another way. It is his nature because he is made that way. He is Love. You might object: “What need do I have for such a weak God who dies?...

Easter 2021 – Letter of the Coordinator  (02.04.2021)

Jesus comes to Thomas and shows him his wounds: Look, the suffering – no matter what suffering – is not simply wiped away or forgotten! The wounds remain wounds. But the one who „bore our suffering” (cf. Isaiah 53,4) also obediently walked through the gates of hell and death, and he continues to be with us (incomprehensibly). He shows that love endures everything, „many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it“, „love is as strong as death“ (Song of Songs 8: 6 f.) – and even stronger… The resurrection is not...
