Getting Personal

'Only in this personal relationship with Christ, 
only in this encounter with the Risen One, 
do we really become Christians.... 
Therefore, let us pray to the Lord to enlighten us, 
so that, in our world, He will grant us the encounter 
with His presence, and thus give us a lively faith, 
an open heart, and great charity for all, 
capable of renewing the world.'

Pope Benedict XVI, 2008
