Walk in faith as ordained Ministers or Lay people and also as responsible leaders in the international, national and diocesan levels of the aged AUC or the re-born AUL, is not very easy. Faith means: to adhere enthusiastically and totally, to a person who is called Christ, or better to the Trinity in all its mystery; to adhere also to the ecclesial community with a passion which is often suffered due to its deficiencies and sinful inclinations.

The journey in faith is certainly a march in the dark, at night. The night of the senses, spirit and intellect that many Mystics have tried and have confirmed. But in this effort of adhering to an "Invisible", the love and knowledge itself will improve and mature. Adhering to God in this way and struggling among the confreres for their numerical and qualitative growth, we ourselves grow as well. In a certain sense we are constrained to re-motivate ourselves, in our Diaconal, Presbyteral or Episcopal vocation and the way we live it.

I am sure that in each Diocese of my country there may be at least 5 priests and deacons sufficiently motivated to begin the AUC and at least 15 Lay people to start the AUL...

So believe it, take the risk and start off...
