Week 57

2 Thessalonians 2 verses 16-17:  May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.

Pope Francis, Address to Participants in the Year of Faith Pilgrimage and the International Congress on Catechesis.  “The heart of a catechist always beats with this systolic and diastolic movement: union with Christ – encounter with others. Both of these: I am one with Jesus and I go forth to encounter others. If one of these movements is missing, the heart no longer beats, it can no longer live.”

Praying with and for you in this Year of Faith.
