Today I had the opportunity to withdraw from reality and the stress of daily life for a couple of hours and attend a spiritual retreat.

After Mass and before the Blessed Sacrament we had two meditations preached by a priest and by a female teacher.

She was talking about how many people live depressed and question their value as human beings and the meaning of their lives.

I am quite sure that all men and women, no matter their time and place, have asked what is the meaning of their lives.

How many times have you thought that your life is meaningless and that you have no importance at all? I know I have done it many times.

But, have you ever considered that you are so valuable, so precious, that Jesus loves you so deeply, that He gave his life for you? Yes, YOU!

He knows your heart to the core, He knows your defects and your virtues, He can see the depths of your soul... and still He loves you to death, literally!

No matter the creatives ways we use to ignore Him, He is always watching, waiting for us to open our hearts to Him. He is patient, He knows no time, He waits and waits, until one day, we turn our face towards Him and decide to open our hearts and souls to the only one that loves us unconditionally, in spite of ourselves.

Are you ready to let Him in?
