I have always found inspiration and consolation in my Catholic faith.
I try everyday to reflect on and live by the words and deeds of Christ.
He went about preaching the Kingdom of God, not building a Church.
He welcomed everyone, specially the marginalized, the broken, the rejects of society.
That is what being ‘catholic’ is all about.
He called out in love and forgiveness and people responded to his call.
Those who responded to the call, these were the original ‘church’.
I pray for my Church that it remains true and faithful to the Christ of the Gospels.
