Broken For Us

The Matthean story of Gentiles coming from a far off region in the East to worship Jesus tells us that Jesus came not only for Jews; he came for Gentiles as well. Accordingly out faith in Jesus should be celebrated not only within Catholic churches and our culture, but is to be shared with those who belief in God and his Christ receives an expression that is different from ours. It is to be shared by those who do not share our culture. In the youth of this Year of Faith, we might remember that so many young people - members of our own family - share neither out faith in God nor our culture. We must reach out to them in this year of faith.
