To believe is to walk in the presence of God (Ge. 17,1). Faith is at the same time a pact and an attitude grabs and envelops and penetrates everything that is the person human: their confidence, their fidelity, their intellectual assent and their adherence emotional. It compromises the entire history of a person: with their criteria, attitudes, general behavior and vital inspiration.
It is an eternal walk through the dark and almost always empty streets, because the Father is always in thick shadows. faith is that precisely: pilgrimage, climb, cry, doubt, wait, fall and get up, and always walk like wandering beings who do not know where will they sleep today and what will they eat tomorrow. Like Abraham, like Israel, like Elijah, like Mary.
