Sunday Reflection (July 18, 2021)

Because God “so loved the world,” Christ’s Church is everywhere.
Christ’s Church is Catholic, that is, Universal, and because the Church
is universal, no one Church or group of Churches can claim to be the only
true Church. Every Church is particular, yet part of something bigger
than itself. Together, we are being built together to bear witness to God’s
love as revealed in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:17-22).
Because of the leading of the Holy Spirit, the world learns that God 
dwells within us and among us who proclaim and enact the message of
God’s love and compassion. Christ’s Church is the place of God’s
presence. What can we do to make our witness to God’s love and
compassion more inviting to others? What can we do to enact love
and compassion for the whole world?
