I met New Horizons through Chiara Amirante. The meeting with her is not a common thing, but one of those events in life that would take time to be told. In short, I can say that I met her casually in the place where I live and it was a love at first sight.
Once I had the privilege of touching the Pietà of Michelangelo, thanks to a superintendent who must have read in my face an expression that went beyond admiration, almost the bewilderment …
How can one think that a boy is able to sculpt a work of that value and that depth of thought with a hammer and a chisel? That superintendent asked me what I was thinking. I was a little embarrassed, because I was asking questions …
He tells me:
“Look, master, I think sometimes the good God is pleased to throw a spark and a drop of himself in someone among us to remind everyone of our mediocrity.”
Here, when I found myself in front of Chiara I tried a little ‘the same thing. I told myself:
“It is not possible that a woman, thus, alone, can realize this miracle; a single woman who creates the Cittadella Cielo today, but before this much more! Some high-level knowledge must have it!”.
What is it for me to be a Knight of Light? It is not so difficult for me that I have always had this inclination towards truth, towards freedom, on the other hand man is born free and freedom is one of the most important values in our life! So for me to be a knight of light means to bring Truth and Freedom, whatever the cost and I do – I must say – without effort!
