Brothers and Sisters
In this time of increased tension around the world, this feast calls us to a powerful counter-message. Our field of vision and inclusion must be much larger than that of the status-quo. It must have been shocking to learn that God’s love extended not only to the Gentiles, but to the whole world. It may be equally shocking to realize that our boundaries are also too narrow. This feast is an epiphany about God’s will for Christ’s impact on the world and his desire that we live out our baptismal promises. Let us continue to be a beacon of Christ's light!
