In Celebrating the Year of Faith we are walking in the footprints of Jesus Christ in Haiti being in relationship with our brothers and sisters.
We know we need humility to recognize the gifts of our brothers and sisters to live in solidarity with them. We are aware that we all have different gifts that we can share with one another. We are discovering more and more what a gift it is to live in simplicity. We learn anew to appreciate the gifts of water, electricity, safe shelter, and the natural fruits of the earth.
We have learned that we cannot take for granted the gift of the Holy Eucharist. In our present situation we cannot receive this gift everyday. God in His mercy is giving us food and strength in the Word of God. Our daily personal reflection and sharing on His Word calls us to conversion in many aspects of our lives. This is an on-going invitation to conversion. We experience how the Word is made flesh and alive in our midst.
Let us pray, live by faith, and allow ourselves to be led by the Word and the Holy Spirit during this Year of Faith.
