It is useless to talk when things speak for themselves in such an eloquent manner.… There is a clear and precise way of finding God, and we have so much need of Him. There are moments in everyone’s life when the need becomes acute; it is when our pride is overcome by suffering and humiliation that we finally look for God. Where can we find Him? The way is clear: Where there is charity, there is love; where there is love, there is God.… The whole world has become aware of it. God is here; therefore, love and charity are also here.
