In order that their entire life be offered in the light of the "consecration in the truth" which Jesus asks the Father for his apostles (Jn. 17:17-19), in order to place their whole intelligence at the service of love like John, and in order to be faithful witnesses and completely at the service of the Church, each one is to receive a sufficiently deepened formation of the intelligence. This humble search for the truth - purifying the intelligence and the imagination - cooperates in the purification of the heart, which is the work of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary. This purification is necessary so that love be more free, and so that the attraction of Jesus be stronger - "he who does what is true comes to the light" (Jn. 3:21).
