As a community of believers, we are all called to do the work of Christ and to further his mission. We do what we are able, we come to Mass every week to pray, we support the needs of the poor, and we encourage family members, friends, and neighbors in difficult moments. In this way, we bring Christ’s peace and healing presence to others.
As Christians, we are called to bring Christ’s peace to others. Like my co-worker and her new husband, we are not to burden our lives with things and possessions, but rather to share the most valuable possession that each of us has: our faith and love in Jesus. When we do as we are called, we give witness to the fact that the Kingdom of God is truly at hand.
