Rejoice Be Glad 10
25 June 2018
Save your people, Lord, and govern them forever.
Pope Francis is insistent. We need saving. We don’t have it all together.
We should beware of two heresies. One that says we can be saved by knowledge, the other by strong willpower. But the gift of grace “surpasses the power of human intellect and will.”
God’s “friendship infinitely transcends us; we cannot buy it with our works, it can only be a gift born of his loving initiative.”
“This invites us to live in joyful gratitude for this completely unmerited gift.
