The Church is calling each of us to take personal responsibility for the mission of the Lord and to "give them some food ourselves."
The standard of our Catholicism is our communion with Paul in Seattle and Francis in Rome.
Jesus gives us a list of reasons why someone might reject something as perfectly effective as the Gospel.
And this is where we find our rest. We find our rest by abandoning ourselves to the Spirit of God. By giving God the power and the space to do his work. If we labor and are burdened, we must give our labors and our burdens to him. If we carry a yoke, we must place that yoke on him.
We seek solidarity with others because Jesus modeled perfect solidarity with us.
Eucharist is an act of thanksgiving, but also an act of giving grace.
Racism is a form of dehumanization, and all forms of dehumanization must be combated with solidarity.
Only in the Holy Spirit can the Church remain so ancient and so new.
The Lord himself gives the Church her mission statement.
We give away our money through tithing so that we remain in control of our money and our money never controls us.
