“Love without suffering is sweet, but it is soft and sentimental; suffering without love is strong, but it is hard and bitter; but love that suffers is both strong and sweet,” writes Catholic philosopher Peter Kreeft.
To know someone in the deepest sense is to see them totally, to love and trust them unconditionally. “My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me,” Jesus asserts in John’s Gospel. God knows us in the deepest sense. He created us! Do we care to know God deeper, to allow ourselves to be seen fully and thus transformed, and then respond to the mission he’s calling us to?
Jesus knows us. Do we know him?
Consider watching the video on the Flocknote email of Bishop Barron on how the early apostles led the Church in boldness and courage.
As a Church rooted in the apostles (“one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church”), we take inspiration from the early leaders who went out into the world to boldly preach the Good News of Jesus Christ!
We hope to see you at the weekend Mass times where Father James is preaching or stop by and visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
“The nation doesn’t simply need what we have. It needs what we are.”
St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)
