Our theme for the year:
“I must stay at your house today”…Luke 19, 1-10
The Eucharist, The Body of the Christ who gives himself as food, gives us strength to become « missionaries ».
At Mass, we are gathered by the Holy Spirit to be united to Christ, and through him, to God the Father.
We are also united to one another by praying for others and for the world. By listening together to the Word of God which gives light to our life. By eating the same shared bread. But also by going to meet our brothers and sisters to give them the Good News of the risen Christ we carry in us. Our faith, nourished by the Body of Christ and our brotherhood in the charity of Christ are the foundation of our mission.
And God chooses us at every eucharist to invite all our brothers and sisters to hear and live the Gospel which makes of us brothers and sisters to all.
Come who may, but we are responsible for inviting all our brothers.
Fr. Gilles Danroc, o.p.
