The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime. (Porta Fidei, 1)
In August, one more time, we turn our eyes to Mary, in the Mystery of her Assumption. Let us contemplate her faith, that is our model and the source of our strength.
