“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.”
(Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est)
No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”. The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk; whenever we take a step towards Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms.
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 3.
As Catholic Christians, we speak about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus as good news because through this one salvific event, God has fully and definitively revealed to humanity God’s Own Life and Love for humankind and for all of creation.
We are loved with an Infinite Love which calls us, from our very conception, to participate in God’s Own Life and Love.
That is the meaning of salvation, to which every human person and all of creation is called.
As people of faith, we deeply desire to share this good news – this gospel – with all people; not only by teaching others about Christ, but showing the world a way to live with justice, truth, and love.
