Young adults at a camp: “Gimmee a ‘J’!” “J!!!” Gimmee an “e!” “Eeee!” Well, you get the idea.
Jesus without reverence is not a good thing. He is not something you buy, or use, or get familiar with like a mascot.
“At the name of Jesus, every head should bow and every knee bend….and every tonmgue proclaim that JESUS IS LORD to the glory of God the Father.”
Today, at the Easter Masses which I celebrated (three of them, in three different parishes), I saw and heard Catholics walking by faith and not by sight. Jesus was not someone to be owned but somone to discover in the same way that you fall in love with someone and come to know them more and more.
It’s Easter 2013! Alleluia! Alleluia!
