Two days before Christmas, among the cards on my desk, I chanced upon a fragment of poetry from Alda Merini:
“… And how to get to know your face,
I will explain it to you:
it is enough to see something
that bears your imprint.
And we are full of your imprints,
as if you had passed through every home
leaving invisible signs”.
I would like to share this short text with you because it presents us again, in a nutshell, the entire message of Christmas, including what it affirms regarding human beings and what it requires of them.
And also, it I think that it speaks in a clear way about our life and what is at the centre of our heart.
