Evangeliza on: That married people who are separated may ﬁnd welcome and support in the Chris an community. We face the same things. Are we builders or destroyers? Do we give life or do we promote death? Do we seek to live in truth and peace or do we prefer darkness and fear? Are we interested in establishing God’s jus ce? To live according to God’s way of peace and salva on we need to allow the words of Jesus to penetrate our hearts and change our lives. This is the victory over those things that destroy human life. A Ques on God s ll provides among his people the gi s and talents necessary to con nue the work of his Church. What gi s are yours to share? Bible Study The First Reading and the Gospel remind us that the Word of God is a Word of power, calling us to salva on. This Word is give to us in the Scriptures. These were wri en long ago, and some mes the ideas, concerns and customs to which they refer are barriers to our understanding. Also, as they are much more than informa on, but a basic part of our conversa on with God, the Scriptures are meant to be part of our prayer. We see this happening during oﬃcial Church liturgies, but o en people wonder how to do this in their own lives. To help us understand and pray more easily with Scripture, many diﬀerent types of Bible study programs have been developed. Next week, we will present some possibili es for Bible Study in our parish. Besides instruc on, these will give equal a en on to discussion, reﬂec on and prayer. May all that we do be in harmony with the libera ng and healing power of Christ’s love.
