The sending of the seventy-two disciples in the Gospel of Luke reveals the Lord's openness to work through people, even as he empowers and support their efforts. Christ does the same for us!info_outline Daily Mass: Choose love
There is a sharp contrast between the response of James and John in the Gospel and the life of St. Therese (who we celebrate today.) While James and John will get it right in the end, we have the opportunity everyday to pursue the love of Christ in all aspects of our lives.info_outline
There are many ways to say "I love you" to the people in our lives:
- with words
- with actions
- being present to another in silence and stillness
The reality of love, its power and beauty, can thus be expressed in many different ways. Similarly, the love of God is revealed to us through the mystery of the Trinity: one God, revealed in three Persons.
May we enter into this great mystery of God's love, and may we express this love - in a variety of powerful ways - to the people in our lives.
