With Jesus in the morning
In the Church today we meditate on the great commandment: “Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength” (Mark 12:29-30). We want to live from this love for you, Lord, where we are, in communion with the Catholics in China, called to live the encounter with people who have a history, ideas, and diverse sensibilities. May they be, and may we, too, be architects of unity. Lord, make us peace workers.
