What is necessary is to continue to love. How does a lamp burn, if
it is not by the continuous feeding of little drops of oil? When
there is no oil, there is no light and the bridegroom will say: "I
do not know you". Dear friends, what are our drops of oil in our
lamps? They are the small things from every day life: the joy, the
generosity, the little good things, the humility and the patience.
A simple thought for someone else. Our way to be silent, to listen,
to forgive, to speak and to act. These are the real drops of oil
that make our lamps burn vividly our whole life.
