In this new volume, Cardinal Comastri helps us reflect on a question that is not at all obvious: what is freedom? Today, talking about freedom is like entering a land of quicksand: we seem to put our foot on the safe side and instead suddenly we realize that the ground does not hold up but sinks under us. We live, in fact, in a society that has lost the meaning of life so much that it doesn’t even look for it anymore. And the consequence is clear, as the stories told in the book clearly testify. Today freedom moves like a blind force that does not see a horizon and does not have a high goal to reach. To understand the meaning of freedom, Cardinal Comastri invites us to look to Mary, the freest woman because she had no idol in her heart. With her answer “Here I am”, an act of pure freedom, Mary surrenders herself to her Creator and allows God to open a passage into human history. When Mary declares herself servant of the Lord, she reaches the apex of human freedom. Freedom, therefore, is given to us as an opportunity to open ourselves to God, of whom we carry an innate need within us.
