The realm of the living
Participation in the Church for the believer is the event of his life. It means for him the rebirth to the true and authentic human life, to the life which is enlightened by the uncreated grace of the Most Holy Spirit and which participates in the risen and incorruptible Body of Christ. And all this is not a promise, not a hope, which may one day be fulfilled. These constitute for the believer an experience, a reality much more intense and much stronger than any experience and reality of this passing world.
Within this experience man encounters true love, divine love, which becomes the basis of all happiness within him, but also the unmistakable guide in his life. If it happens to us humans that a person or thing of this world often absorbs our love, how much more will the encounter with divine love shake our whole existence?
