There is much to ponder tonight.
The past week brought me to a renewal of spirit with the visit of Pope Francis to the US. I am left with more questions than answers, yet filled with joyful hope.
The face of the Catholic Church is changing and that is a blessing. Pope Francis has invited us all to be open, welcoming, and willing to live the Gospel. This is good. This is a refreshing message. It is the point after all, of all this religious business. But courage is needed to follow the pope’s lived example of genuine love.
Will we move beyond our corporate fear of being truly relevant? Can we trust that God is indeed in the process of growth?
These are questions to be pondered on an Autumn evening under the profound beauty of a full moon.
All will be well…
