2019 08 11: All Nations

Our Lord said, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see it and give glory to your Father in heaven.” St. John said that this light is Christ, and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness shall not overcome it. You and I at St. Augustine’s can by God’s grace be such a light, a community where many nations and peoples come to give glory to God, where we find our deepest identity in Christ and truest community in Christ’s body, where we burn with anger at injustice while also loving our enemies, where we find a hope and a joy deeper than any despair and more powerful than any gun, in the Gospel of the Almighty God who created a good world and redeemed us in Christ, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, who reigns even now from the Cross and will reign forever in the Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.
