He asks us to become his friend and in all proposals of friendship we are free to either accept or reject it as we want..
The mosaics do not suggest a special spiritual journey or acts of devotion, the main condition for the acceptance of this proposal consisting in respect for the essential content of the Decalogue..
The first “table” of law requires us to shake off the dust,to awaken ourselves from the torpor of daily customs and to have a thirst for justice.
The second “table” requires us to love our neighbour and to be fair to both the individual and the community. On entering into friendship with God it twill be the heart that unites body and soul and which weighs much more than reason alone that will provide us with confirmation.
For man to be able to reap the benefits of this friendship he must always remain alert, closely guard his vital force that is in him: will and reason and even more the affectionate basis of the soul which guides both our perceptive faculties.
The heart, which is the totality of man must be pure, intimately free and open, in order to be able to see God..
This is gospel generated by the Bishops of Ravenna and the mosaics form a concrete form of aid offered to the faithful to help them in their spiritual journey.
This being the message transmitted by the mosaics of the Basilicas of Ravenna.
