Stride Decidedly Toward the Glorious Goal

By Fr. Jonas Abib
Founder Cancao Nova

That is a solid certainty: we know how the history of salvation of mankind will end and we stride decidedly toward that glorious goal. Each day that passes we are nearer our King Who shall come and reign through the centuries.

That is our hope! We have the image of His arrival before our eyes and we know where we are going. That is the reason why nothing can detain us, nothing can hinder us on our way, on the contrary, obstacles are springboards that allow us to go farther and higher.

We do not have a permanent dwelling here on earth; we are like pilgrims here. A people engaged in a long journey toward the Motherland.

A Church in movement, walking along the pathways of a wonderful pilgrimage. Ahead of us, Jesus walks and opens our pathways. Beside us is Mary. We are always in good company. There is no reason to lose heart and dismay!
