Share the treasure

"Christianity, in highlighting those values which sustain ethics, does not impose, but rather proposes Christ’s invitation to know the truth which sets us free. The believer is called to offer that truth to his contemporaries, as did the Lord, even before the dark omen of rejection and the Cross. The personal encounter with the one who is Truth in person compels us to share this treasure with others, especially by our witness." (Pope Benedict XVI, March 28, 2012, Cuba)

We should all feel an urge to respectfully present the beauty of Christ to those around us. Christ is the answer to the deepest problems and anxieties of our friends. Christ is the most faithful and committed friend a person could possibly have in this world. Christ brings peace and joy to the most troubled and broken hearts. Share the treasure!!
