Light shining through St Peter's - Of course, until the Lord returns, the Church is still composed of human members and thus, she is both human and divine. She is often wounded and in need of healing. However, she still offers the means through which we participate in the very life of God. To her has been entrusted the Sacraments and the Word, along with the gift of a teaching office upon which we can depend. The Church is our life, because we now live in Christ, from whose wounded side she was birthed at the tree of Calvary. Through faith we are invited into a deeper conversion which enables us to grasp this truth.Prayer is the path to a fuller encounter with the Risen Lord. In that encounter we change. Like St Paul, this kind of real, tangible experience of living in the heart of the Church for the sake of the world can become our lived, daily experience. For that to happen, we need, above all else, to pray. Let's ask the Risen Lord who spoke to Saul to open our own eyes to see Him - and our ears to hear His voice. St. Paul's Conversion can become our own. Jesus and the Church Are Inseparable.
