(St. Gregory the Great, Pope and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus said, “I must proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God, because for this purpose I have been sent.” Lk 4:38-44
People often wonder, why Jesus came among us?
It wasn’t to rail on the Pharisees.
It wasn’t to become a worldly king.
It actually wasn’t to become a “great” anything.
Jesus came among us to “proclaim.”
The Kingdom of God is here – and that’s good news, because we have the power to live in that Kingdom, despite whatever worldly situation we may be in – when we keep Jesus close to our hearts.
When we internalize all those powerful Words He taught and then live them – we’ll find ourselves, beloved, right there reveling in the Joy of the Kingdom of God.
And THAT’S pretty Awesome!
Thank you Jesus!
