My Dear Parishioners:
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 2:5)
Jesus had the purest mind this world has ever seen. His convictions were so strong, so unswerving that He was not afraid to mingle with any group, secure in the knowledge that He would not be contaminated or swayed.
Fear...fear of rejection, fear our beliefs will be attacked, fear our Faith might be shaken...makes us unwilling to give voice to our convictions or to listen to those of others, but if that is the case, perhaps we need to examine just how deep our convictions really are.
Jesus had no such fear, no need to fence Himself off from others for His own protection. He knew the difference between graciousness and compromise, and we would do well to follow His example.
Jesus alone is “the way”, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6). Never lose your confidence in the truth of the Gospel! And, like Jesus...may you always be “speaking the truth in Love.”
Until next time,
