Following Jesus is always worth the risk! June 30 2019 XIII Sunday of Ordinary Time Dear Brothers and Sisters, the Gospel of Sunday, June 30th will invite us to reflect, once again, on the beauty of our Christian vocation. Christianity, as repeatedly stressed by the last Popes, is not primarily a set of rules, a "body" of doctrines, a philosophy or an ideology, it is not even following a human leader, but it is following a divine Person , the second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, son of God, Redeemer of the world! And following Him means increasing more and more in our heart his divine life. Dear Brothers and Sisters, if it is true that following Christ means renunciation, fatigue and sacrifice it is also true that the Christian ideal is something great and fascinating. An ideal that becomes possible because, as St. Paul reminds us, the Spirit of Christ who lives in us "configures" us to Christ, and guides us to true freedom and definitive victory! What a wonderful and extraordinary adventure life on earth becomes, even in its ordinariness, when it turns into a continuous, luminous and joyful following Jesus Christ, Light of the world!
