Quote/s of the Day – 18 October – The Feast of St Luke the Evangelist
“The Church’s mission begins at Pentecost
“from Jerusalem” to expand “to the ends of the earth”.
Jerusalem does not mean just a geographical point.
Rather it signifies a focal point of salvation history.
The Church does not leave Jerusalem to abandon her
but to graft the pagan nations onto the olive tree of Israel.”
“We must abandon ourselves to the power of the Spirit,
who is able to infuse light and especially love for Christ;
we must open ourselves to the inner fascination that Jesus works
in the hearts of those who aspire to authenticity,
while fleeing from half measures.”
