Where Heart Speaks to Heart


The motto chosen by Blessed John Henry Newman reflects our desire to be a community that:

 

§  listens attentively to God in scripture, tradition, creation and human hearts.

 

§  shares our faith in a spirit of love.

 

 

§  respects our world, our Catholic heritage and our shared humanity and the sincerity of personal convictions.

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Scripture Refelection

Soren Kierkegaard once said that what Jesus wants is followers not admirers. He’s right. To admire Jesus without trying to change our lives does nothing for Jesus or for us. Yet how exactly does one follow Jesus? Classically we have said that we do this by trying to imitate him. But that posits a further question: How do we imitate Jesus? John of the Cross then offers some advice regarding how this can be done. We should begin, he says, by reading the scriptures and meditating the life on Jesus. Then we should pray to Christ and ask him to instil in us his desire, longing, and motivation. In essence, we should pray to Jesus and ask him to make us feel the way he felt while he was on earth.
