CAMPUS PADRE Offers food for thought
Thursday of the 25th Week of Ordinary Time
But we, the ever new creation, see the living God bring the dead to life and continue to build the Church of living stones. In every generation, new heralds proclaim the coming of the Kingdom. New prophets speak the living Word and challenge the world to forsake the darkness and embrace the Son. The Messiah who was and is and ever shall be, the revelation of truth itself, still seeks the lost, frees the prisoner, clothes the naked, heals the sick… and dies and rises so that all might yet be one. The Priests of the ageless covenant, we still shepherd our flocks through The Valley of the shadow of death and along that narrow path, fearing no evil, for the Lord who is with us takes delight in us.
Despite every effort by the enemy, from Adam and Eve through to this very day… God adds to the legions of the Saints. Every day, the efficacy of the Cross is experienced by those who were lost and are found. Every day, like Herod, people come and wonder at Christ who is glorified by us and manifested through us.
The enemy is determined to wage war against heaven and earth, against God and Man. But we, who have seen and heard, who have died and risen in Christ; we claim the victory of Christ over sin and death, made free to go and sin no more, to walk in the way, the truth and the life of Christ, who leads us home…
Peace doesn't just happen; it's made.
