THE NOW WORD ON MASS READINGS

Opt. Memorial St. Callistus I

IN some ways, it is politically incorrect in many quarters of the Church today to speak about “the wrath of God.” Instead, we are told, we should give people hope, speak about God’s love, His mercy, etc. And all this is true. As Christians, our message is not called the “bad news”, but “good news.” And the Good News is this: that no matter the evil a soul has done, if they make an appeal to God’s mercy, they will find forgiveness, healing, and even intimate friendship with their Creator. I find this so wonderful, so exciting, that it is an absolute privilege to preach for Jesus Christ.
