Come & See

Where two or three are gathered together in my name I am there among them. (Matthew: 18:20)

Word of God

Believers who respond to God’s word and become members of Christ’s Body become intimately united with him: “In that body the life of Christ is communicated to those who believe, and who, through the sacraments, are united in a hidden and real way to Christ in his Passion and glorification.’ This is especially true of Baptism, which unites us to Christ’s death and Resurrection, and the Eucharist, by which ‘really sharing in the body of the Lord, we are taken up into communion with him and with one another.”

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

in you we know the love of God.

When we gather together in your name

we experience the marvel of your loving presence which challenges us to live for one another.

Help us to follow your example

so that we may never become complacent. Help us to listen to your constant call to us to continue the work you began,

you who lived and died for us.

Grant this through your Spirit of Love. Amen.
