Commentary on the Gospel of
Memorial of St. Therese of the Child Jesus
“God is with us.”
In Luke, Jesus rebuked the disciples for wanting to lay waste to a village.
He’s with us, and he loves us. He doesn’t want to hurt us. He is with us—every second, every minute—right here in my office, in your home, while you’re at work. He doesn’t ignore your problems, he doesn’t care if you’re in a bad mood, he sees through the high days and low days and every day. He is with us. I can’t make a better interpretation than this: he is with us, even, as the Scriptures tell us, to the end of time.
Beyond salvation, what better news can there be?
