From Our Pastor Father Francis
The pity of Jesus Christ is the cause of a life-transforming abundance. Christ is not scandalized by human need and want. Rather, the Lord regards every experience of human lack as a prime opportunity to manifest God’s lavishness. From our earliest days, God has beckoned us, “Come, all who are thirsty! Come, you who have no money!” Our sickness, our exhaustion, our insufficiency—Jesus tells us, “bring them here to me.” Then, what was formerly a “deserted place” becomes a place of satisfaction. Trial, distress, hunger, and danger do not separate us from the love of Christ. Rather, they draw him close to us with a love that conquers all.
