Observe one rule: the Gospel. This “constitution” is superior to all others. It is the constitution that Jesus left his apostles (cf. Mt. 4:23). It is not difficult, complicated, or legalistic like others. On the contrary, it is dynamic, gentle, and stimulating for your soul. A saint separated from the Gospel is a false saint! (Cardinal Van Thuan, Five Loaves and Two Fish)


When we enter into the Gospel we encounter not a set of principles but a person – Jesus the Christ, the one who once was dead but now lives. To hold to the Gospel in its entirety is to encounter the living Christ. Every day some time needs to be spent with the Gospel, every day we need this encounter with Christ.
