“Vos estis sal terrae; quod si sal evanuerit, in quo salietur? Ad nihilum valet ultra, nisi ut mittatur foras et conculcetur ab hominibus.
Vos estis lux mundi. Non potest civitas abscondi supra montem posita;
neque accendunt lucernam et ponunt eam sub modio, sed super candelabrum, ut luceat omnibus, qui in domo sunt.
Sic luceat lux vestra coram hominibus, ut videant vestra bona opera et glorificent Patrem vestrum, qui in caelis est.” (Matthaeus 5, 13-16)
“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5, 13-16)
Sine Timore derives its name from Zechariah’s chant or Benedictus: “ut sine timore, de manu inimicorum nostrorum liberati, serviamus illi in sanctitate et iustitia coram ipso, omnibus diebus nostris.” – “rescued from the hand of our enemies, without fear we might worship him in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.” (Luke 1, 74-75)
This activity born in poverty and humility, trusting in God’s Providence; indeed says the psalmist: “Entrust your works to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” (Proverbs 16, 3)
There are three main purposes that move us:
I. To awake the Christians to public testimony their faith, for their own and others’ salvation; reminding ourselves that the wise man fears more the judgment of God than the judgment of men. “Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.” (Matthew 10, 32-33)
II. To rediscover the figures of Saints who, abandoning himself in the hands of God, have marked the course of our history, drawing from the great treasure of the Christian tradition.
III. In a world that pursues death and vanity as new and ancient idols, we aim to create beauty and truth, certain that what is true and right always finds its way.
We strive and will always strive to transmit messages in full communion with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
“Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ Anything more is from the evil one.” (Matthew 5, 37)
We never invoke violence or pronounce judgment against our brothers, and we go in line with sinners. Right is in fact to condemn the sin and love the sinner.
We rely on the guide of Saint John the Baptist, the protection of Saint Michael the Archangel and the intercession of the Blessed Mary, our mother and star of the new evangelization.
We thank in a special way the Holy Father Benedict XVI, who in his leadership has shaped us over the years of our youth, and accompanies us in prayer.
