Her writings, which regularly reached me, first in Vicenza and now in Turin, have not only strengthened my faith, but they have nourished my daily meditation, giving me strength and serenity for the spiritual and pastoral orientation of my life and my mission.
Every time I read them, I was amazed by the theological and spiritual insights on the mystery of the Trinity, of the One and Triune God, and on the mystery of the Church, they were so deep and simple at the same time, yet with a truth certainly revealed by the Holy Spirit, who opened forth for her the indelible riches of His saving action.
Time passes and only infrequently I have still been able to enjoy her presence and her words in person; but I have always had the opportunity to send her my greetings and assure her of my prayers and my gratitude, receiving her special greeting and blessing.
Together with her countless writings that will remain a mine to be explored, treasured, and made known to all, her humanity and concreteness have always fascinated me and reminded me of the same attitude of Jesus, who was concerned to feed the little daughter of Jairus, risen from the dead. He would say to his beloved Saint Teresina, amazed at what He had done granting her request to make it snow in August: “I did it just to please you.”
