Prayer in Action

Following the Great Fifty Days, the Easter celebration of Christ's opening the door to the eternal, reconciling humanity to God and promising to be not only with us but for us every moment of every day of our mortal existence, we now face the task of bringing that message to the world.

Our message is not complex. We are all God's children. Love created us, nourishes us and heals the wounds we inflict on others and ourselves. The God of abundance has given us everything we need to have a life that overflows with blessing upon blessing. And God is always here, among us, to guide us toward God's dream of a world where want no longer is a word because justice ensures there is enough and every person is afforded the dignity, respect and forbearance that each of us desperately need.

Our Christianity is more than a "Get Out of Hell FREE!" card. It is a ticket to the greatest adventure ride life can offer: a life filled with love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and gentleness. It brings an inner peace and strength that can absorb the deep pain and suffering that comes with being mortal.

Pope Francis recently said, "In our Christian life too, prayer and action are always profoundly united. Prayer that does not lead to concrete action toward a brother who is poor, sick, in need of help, the brother in difficulty, is a sterile and incomplete prayer."

And so we go forth this summer, rejoicing in the power of the Spirit. Spread the joy that comes from knowing you are loved to the depth of your being. Spread the joy that comes from seeing the Christ in everyone you meet. Spread the Good News by BEING good news for not just your family and friends, but by being good news for your neighbors near and far.

The Kingdom of Heaven is near!
