Who is God? What does knowing him mean for us? When God revealed his name to Moses, he initiated a personal relationship of love with his people. To tell one’s name is to reveal one’s identity. God uses the language of mother-love to describe his tenderness, patience, and fidelity. Given such a relationship, even sinful people can beg to be adopted as God’s children. John’s three verses sum up the entire gospel: God loved us so much that he sent his Son. To believe in Jesus is to know God; to reject him is to refuse life. Paul's letter calls us to the shared joy which is the mark of Christians. God’s children mirror his love, peace and unity; by helping one another we become more like God. Our kiss of peace during the Eucharist expresses our love. Paul’s concluding blessing calls on God as source of our love, Jesus the Crucified who has manifested God’s love for us, and the indwelling Spirit who enables us to love God and each other. The life of the Trinity is model and source for our Christian lives.

Working wonders for those who need help in our neighbourhood….

Working with St. Elizabeth HealthCare, ShareLife, through Catholic Charities has implemented a shared services initiative that has provided support to agencies in the areas of human resources (16 agencies) and financial services (5 agencies.). Now in its fourth year of activity agencies participating in this initiative report that they are able to improve the quality, competency and accuracy of their work in these areas. Some Executive Directors reported on the impact of this initiative to their agency. “It has enhanced our agency’s competence.” shares one Director, “Before, I was in way over my head, but trying to do my best. Now I have expertise at my disposal and feel comfortable.”

Today is ShareLife Sunday.

Thank you for your generosity.
