On the 9th. Father Ignacio Larranaga Pass Over Anniversary
The shapes of the hills and even the stars disappeared. A flood tide of honey and tenderness rose and rose, and with its immense waves, began to cover everything: valleys, rocks, hills…everything was submerged until at last, only Love remained. Oh my beloved Dad, a thousand times blessed! And I was lost in that floodtide, I let myself be swept away by the waves and then knew nothing more…”

To His Encounter (John 12, 13)
There are many ways to go to the Encounter: You may go to the Encounter with a friend, an enemy, or death. The sailor goes out to encounter the sea. Nicodemus went at night to meet with the Master. The Psalmist goes out, also at night, to encounter the Beloved. The Gospel tells us that: “a multitude after hearing that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem took palms and went to encounter Him”. Later, Jesus in Gethsemane, again at night, went to encounter Judas and his cohorts. I know well Lord, that since You came into this world, You are the destination where steps of the sons of men end. You are the inevitable end because it is You who is the end of my steps and as the day ends in the night so will I end in You.

The Road from Poverty to Love
Let us begin by displaying two panoramic canvases to the reader that, like brilliant flames, give splendor to all the activities of Jesus, his words and his ideas during this first period: “Jesus went all around Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom, and curing all kinds of sickness and disease among the people. The news about him spread throughout all of Syria, and the people brought all their sick to him, and all those who suffered: the possessed, the deranged, the paralyzed, and he healed them all. Large crowds followed him from Galilee and the Ten Cities, from Jerusalem, Judea, and from across the Jordan.” (Mt 4:23-25)

A hymn to joy
Depth, that is the essence. Where there is depth, there is life. Where there is life, there is a human being. And where there is a human being, there is both joy and pain. From the depths, great fountains gush forth, and the higher they reach, the deeper is the subsoil from which they spring. Pain and joy come from the same depths. The depth reached by joy is also reached by pain. As much as one suffers, so does one rejoice, and vice versa. Jesus experienced deep sorrow inasmuch as he had been a wellspring of joy. He was able to free us from pain because he had previously suffered pain and knew it from experience.

A bird’s-eye view
If we take a bird’s-eye view of the march along the path of life with God, from vocal prayer to more profound communication, we will have the following general outline. In the first stages, God leaves the initiative to the individual, who functions according to the norms of psychology. God’s participation is rare. He leaves it to the individual to find the means and supports, as if the individual were the only carpenter in the house. And although it is true that, in these first stages, divine consolations may abound, prayer appears to be an edifice exclusively supported by human scaffolding.

The Son, a Picture of His Mother
There exist in the gospels other aspects that are very interesting which serve to help us see in a deductive manner who the Mother was and how she acted. In the first place Jesus is the One Who was sent to manifest the good news by which He lived completely, prior to proclaiming them. In the second place Jesus was that Son Who, as a child, observed and admired in His mother that whole set of human values –– humility, patience, fortitude –– which were later on to be promulgated in the mountains. I say this because every time that Mary appears in the gospels she manifests those characteristics which are put forth in Jesus’ sermon on the mountain: patience, humility, fortitude, peace, meekness and compassion.
