Year of Mercy
The call to follow Jesus in today’s Gospel couldn’t be expressed in a more radical way! It might even sound like too much, too radical, too scary.
Love is scary. Coming to trust totally in another, letting-go of control, actually believing in another and giving your life to that person IS scary. That is what following Jesus is all about.
Jesus has taken the initiative, declaring to each of us: “I love you with all my love” and he waits for our response.
