“It was not you who chose me,
but I who chose you and appointed you to
go and bear fruit that will remain,
so that whatever you ask the Father
in my name he may give you.
This I command you: love one another.”
How do those words of Jesus sit with you?
Let them penetrate your soul so they can be lived in your day-to-day life.
Since peace is such a dire need in our world today, carry a couple of those words in your heart.
Heritage word—“Or mission as Christians is to ‘mid-wife’ the reign of God.
It means dying to violence and rising as a person of peace
and non-violence in the pattern of Jesus’ own life.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
