God summons to be holy, to follow his way, a way of justice to others and righteousness of life. This summons was announced by Moses, by the Prophets, and by Jesus. More than a prophet, Jesus also promises to walk beside us and support us in the Way. In our world many ponderous forces seem to threaten the poor, the weak, and creation itself. With Jesus by our side, let us renew our commitment to travel the path of discipleship.
