The Political Value of an Experience

As we await the June issue of Traces, we publish the Close-Up, a dialogue between Carrón and a group of Italian university students involved in student government.

Julián Carrón. We continue on our journey, starting from the two beautiful songs we just sang–"Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" and "Sou Feliz Senhor"–which take us back to what we said at the Exercises in December (“What Can Withstand the Test of Time?”). “Will you still love me tomorrow?” To whom can we say this? And then, “I am happy, Lord, because you walk with me.” There is only joy in life if we lean not on ourselves, but on One who is present, who is alive because He is risen; only if we do not depend on our own capacity. It is wonderfully liberating! Let’s begin.
