Our task in history: to announce the primacy of love

Leave a comment

In the passage of the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 14: 21-27) Saint Paul establishes and organizes communities; I am the Body of Christ in the world. Names of people and geographic locations are involved when The Gospel becomes history. It is the logic of the Incarnation that enters into the concrete life of everybody.

In the text of the Apocalypse (Ap 21: 1-5), we see the Holy City descending from above, a city where all old things have passed and only love remains forever. We and our communities live challenged between these two absolute polarities: Christ the Lord with His Word and His gestures and the expectation of His return to Glory, when we will live together in the Holy City. Our task in history is to announce the primacy of love, is to become yeast and light in the story so often terribly dark. Our faith makes us – as Scripture says – “capable of enduring many difficulties”.

Easter is not an historic alternative, but it is the pulsating heart of our day, it is the concrete and living sense immersed in the heart of time and space. We ask for the intercession of Saint John the Apostle and the Evangelist, “the disciple loved  by Jesus”, to love more and better and to be masters in humanity as Paul VI remembers and to recognize us as disciples loved by the revealing Christ of our Father in heaven.
