Purity? It’s all about “style”!
Gospel of Sunday 1st of Lenten, March 10, 2019,

Dear brothers and sisters, Lent time is the ideal time to rediscover the beauty and purity of the Christian lifestyle as a response to the love of God that has been manifested in the whole life of Jesus, but above all in the "foolishness" of the Cross . In fact, as Mother Liliana of Paradise reminds us, "On that naked body the signs of love are indelible scars of the folly of a God who loves human beings immensely and for them, allows himself to be crucified …”

The Gospel of the first Sunday of Lent, in fact, will remind us that Christian life, lived with the spirit of purity, a virtue that defends us in the daily struggle against the "polluting" action of the spirit of evil, is simply a question of style: that is to live loving the great beauty in its source which is God and defending its reflection present in the whole created universe, according to the style of Jesus, up to the foolishness of the Cross!

In fact, dear brothers and sisters, it would not be considered a foolishness if, in a world in which the devil tries to dirty and destroy the human self making him believe he is god; that the others are enemies to destroy in order to defend himself; that happiness consists in being rich, joyful, violent and lustful; that he can exploit and destroy creation as he pleases ... we manifested, through the witness of our lives, the beauty of God, defending its "reflection" in our brothers and sisters, in living creatures and in our common home, this precious pearl, suspended in the space that is the earth?
