“You are saved when the Lord looks for you.”

“Some believe that faith and salvation come with our effort to look for, to seek the Lord.  Whereas, it’s the opposite: you are saved when the Lord looks for you, when He looks at you and you let yourself be looked at and sought for.  The Lord will look for you first.  And when you find him, you understand that he was waiting there looking at you.  He was expecting you from beforehand.

“This is salvation.  And you let yourself be loved.  Salvation is precisely this meeting where he works first.  If this meeting does not take place, we are not saved.”

Pope Francis
