The world is hungry for God.
Some people know it and some don’t. But the majority are in search of answers to that hunger.
There are no verbal answers these days, only existential ones, answers lived out by an individual or groups of individuals who really believe that it can be done and who are willing to try.
They know that in trying they will share the wounds of Christ, for to love is to be crucified. But they also know that modern man in search of God is a replica of St. Thomas the Apostle, who had to touch Christ in order to believe.
