The Sunday Word
This selection from the Gospel of Saint Luke reaches its crescendo with Christ’s promise that those who come to him will be with Him in paradise. So, we need again to stress how heaven for the Christian is not simply a place “out there,” apart from the trials and the crosses of this present life. Instead, heaven is a living, robust relationship with Jesus who longs to inform every moment and movement of our day here and now. We will be with Christ the King forever and in Christ and in his Church, forever begins today!
