It reminded me of a news item recently concerning Pope Benedict XVI's message to the 10th International Youth Forum in Italy. Theme of the Forum was "Learn to Love".
The Holy Father told the young people, "In his Passion, in his total self-giving, Christ has revealed to us the face of God that is Love. Contemplation of the mystery of the Trinity makes us enter into this mystery of eternal Love, which is fundamental for us. The first pages of the Bible state, in fact, that "God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" (Genesis 1:27). By the very fact that God is love and man is in his image and likeness, we understand the profound identity of the person, his vocation to love.
Man is made to love; his life is fully realized only if he lives in love. After having searched for a long time, St. Therese of the Child Jesus understood the meaning of her existence: "My vocation is Love!" I exhort young people present in this forum to search with all their heart to discover their vocation to love, as persons and as baptized. This is the key to the whole of existence.
In Rwanda, in 1994, the people were blinded by the lies of the Evil One and unable to understand their vocation to love. Even in 2010 we see the tragic fruit of hatred and the absence of love. Let us think about that during these Easter days as we rejoice in the world's greatest evidence of Love!
PS I found Imaculee's book in the local library.
