Brothers and Sisters
The path to redemption is not without conflict, suffering, division or challenge. Let us always rely on God's mercy and the gifts of the Holy Spirit to overcome what is incomplete or fractured. This has been borne out throughout history, including in Jesus’ own life. When we encounter darkness or failure, we know this is not the last word. We know and believe in God’s unending love and mercy, and we are called to extend it to others. I pray that we continue to be bearers of our Lord's love and mercy always!
