As we daily search for ways to impliment the New Evangelization, we should keep in mind that most of those who've been lost to the faith once were warmed by the fires of faith in their lives. For many, be it by neglect or tragic event, that fire has been extinguished in their lives. Today's quote from Albert Schweitzer offers a way to perhaps rekindle the spark of faith for others: by loving them as authentically and completely as we can so as to help them find again the consoling warmth of faith in God who is love itself.
In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
