God in Christ was reconciling the world to himself,
and he has entrusted to us the news that they are reconciled.
Gospel Acclamation for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
2 Corinthians 5:19
On Sunday, in the song with which the Church prepared for the proclamation of the Gospel, we sang of God’s work and our mission.
It all begins with God, and then, as we are drawn into communion with him he seeks to draw out of us love for our neighbour. One of the key expressions of this love taking a practical form is the desire to share with them the news of God’s goodness for them and for us all.
The words ‘God is love’ etc may already be familiar to them, but we, who know the truth of the words, and experience the love of God in our lives, can maybe find ways of communicating that love that are more telling than words only.
- What drew you to faith?
- What helps you speak most helpfully of the love of God?
