Hajja Salesjana July-September 2022

5 hajja Always say that love starts at home: family first, and then your own town or city. It is easy to love people who are far away but it is not always so easy to love those who live with us or right next to us. I do not agree with the big way of doing things - love needs to start with an individual. To get to love a person, you must contact that person, become close. Everyone needs love. All must know that they're wanted and that they are important to God.

He also said, "Whatever you did to the least of my brethren, you did it to me," (Mt 25:40) so we love Him in the poor – and every human being in the world is poor in something or other. He said, "I was hungry and you fed me (...) I was naked and you clothed me" (Mt. 25, 35). I always remind the Sisters and Brothers that our day is made up of twenty-four hours with Jesus.
