Dear friends: Could you answer this question when you hear the Word of God or when you come to Church and you receive Jesus in the most Holy Eucharist? I hope you can say yes indeed. It burns within me when I am close to Jesus both in word and in the sacrament of his Body and Blood.
Dear friends in Christ Jesus: Today the word of God challenges every one of us to be Holy as our Father is Holy.
The Holy Scriptures are always challenging us to live lives worthy of our calling, of our vocation as Christians.
Our time is one of agitation and anxiety. Even our search for God, for holiness, and our efforts to love and serve our neighbors are also frequently marked with inquietude instead of being full of confidence and peace.
