“Who am I?” is an important question. But much more important, Pope Francis tells us, is this one: “For whom am I?” Our identity is rooted in what we have received, but it takes its form above all from the love to which we dedicate our life. In loving God, letting ourselves be loved by Him, giving his love to others, we discover who we are. The series of articles in this book, written by priests who work with young people, can help us to make this discovery. With the first disciples of Jesus, with the teachings of the Popes, of the saints, of St. Josemaría, we can grasp more deeply this reality: God is calling us, He has a plan for each one: holiness.
The book has three sections. The first section includes three articles that present, within a broad framework, the reality of God’s call and our encounter with Him. The second section presents different vocational paths and dwells on some aspects of the discernment of one’s own vocation. The final section is addressed to those who have already been following our Lord for some years; it is an invitation to contemplate, with grateful memory, the beauty of a life spent following Christ.
St. Josemaría recalled how, when he was only sixteen years old, he discovered that his heart was asking him for “something great that is love”. May we also discover and rediscover, because love is always young, always surprising, something great that is love.
