Our parents found shelter in the many valleys. We stayed in Trent: some for work or their studies. I stayed mostly in order to look after the Movement which was coming to life. We lived together in a small apartment and called it “the little house”.
We ran to the air raid shelters night and day. And took the Gospel with us.
We had found the ideal to live for: God. But what did this imply?
The Gospel gave the answer: “It is not the one who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven” (Mt 7:21). So there was no false piety or sentimentalism. To do God’s will: that was what mattered. Everyone can put this into practice: this was the ticket to holiness for the crowds.
