Is the Christian called to Inspiration or Relevance? We look to St. Theresa of Kolkata to understand today’s Gospel, Luke chapter 14.
Who caused the crisis in the Church? I did.
“I hereby commit to staying engaged with the suffering of the world, as long as I am alive and as much as I am able.
I commit to this because on the cross no tear is cried in vain, no ache in the heart is unfruitful.
If I will gaze, wide-eyed, at the suffering of the world AND lean in, I will begin to learn what it is to be human, and I will see Jesus.
And there is no other way of being a Christian for me anymore. None whatsoever. If I don’t suffer with/for the world I might as well quit.
If I believe the Gospel—if Jesus really did come to heal me and the whole human race—then I commit to being a vessel of that healing.
His mercy is deep and wide enough for the entire world. Healing humanity is why He lived and died. How can I live for anything else, and how can I not die for it?”—Audrey Assad
