". . . the beauty of an encounter"

Pippo from Italy writes in the current issue of Traces about some workers who attended CL's meeting with the Holy Father back in March. These workers attended when nobody from his parish, despite being invited, did. This leads him to observe that "the real Christian is not he who follows a moral code or a doctrine, but he who follows the beauty of an encounter".

Of course, the beauty of an encounter can be an encounter with beauty, with truth, with real goodness, not the media manufactured, sentimental variety that can never compare with a true encounter. I had a weekend-long encounter myself, which was a tremendous blessing. God-willing (insha'Allah) it will bear some good fruit.
