none of the rest is enough

«"If Jesus came here in silence - softly - and sat on that chair over there, near her, and at a certain point we realized it, I wonder if in many of us the amazement, gratitude, joy... I wonder if in many of us the affection would be truly spontaneous," as if He were a well-known friend, with a simple familiarity. "I wonder if we all would be covered in a blanket of shame, if we realized in that moment that we had never said 'You,'" that we had been together, that everything had been beautiful, but nobody felt the need to say His name.»

Fr. Carrón quoting Fr. Giussani at the Communion and Liberation Spiritual Exercises
