Another great writer on our blog has been Adailton Batista who is one of the top producers in Canção Nova. A man with a powerful zeal for the faith, he has has graced not only our pages, but done great work that has blessed our readers from the behind the scenes. Today’s “Best of” originally appeared in December of 2013.
The human being was not created to live stationary. Each individual has in himself the desire – some more, others less – of living new experiences of life.
The changes that we suffer throughout life, are not always what we planned for ourselves, but if we stop to evaluate such changes, we will see that they were essential for our formation.
Joy, sadness, fear, worry…What feelings do you have when something changes against your wishes.
If in the reality, in which you live, nothing changes, or changes against your will, do not stop in the negative. Open yourself to the new. The newness that is more difficult to accept will produce something good. No change will have meaning if it is not for the better… Therefore, may we be men and women filled with hope.
Will it be that we Christians who experience and know the “Good News”, will not fall into a routine and the mundaneness of this world.
In religious institutions and organizations change constantly happens. It is necessary that those that choose to be part of these institutions are prepared physically and psychologically for this reality.
The rule, the code, the statute, the law, the directives are created to be fulfilled, without them the organizations and groups will not have order and organization.

I write this blog for the public in general, but principally for the Catholic Christians. In this context, we are invited by the Church to be attentive to the changes that society lives, in order that open to the new, we may know how to announce the newness that is Jesus and His Reign.
I end with this excerpt from the apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium of Pope Francis:
“When the Church summons Christians to take up the task of evangelization, she is simply pointing to the source of authentic personal fulfilment. For “here we discover a profound law of reality: that life is attained and matures in the measure that it is offered up in order to give life to others. This is certainly what mission means”.Evangelii Gaudium paragraph 10
