 What we do

Pray with us

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites… they love to pray for people to see them. But when you pray, go to your private room and, when you have shut your door, pray to the One who is in that secret place” (Matthew 6:5-6).

"If you had known me, then you would have known my Father also"    John 8:12-20


The main revelation of the gospel is that Jesus is the light and salvation for all those who follow him; He is the light for the world, not only for the Jews.  In the Bible, the light helps find the path to follow, it helps value the will of God and avoid danger.


John showed the degree of darkness and ignorance in which the Jews where living, ruled by laws that once sought harmony for the people, but which over time, turned into a burden, keeping the people oppressed and in darkness.


With his teachings, Jesus recovers the light for those who believe in God.  His enemies cannot understand why Jesus describes himself as the light, and demand evidence to verify his authority to teach and to do the things he does.  They need to comply with the law of Moses, which establishes that all testimony must be supported by two witnesses.  Jesus relies on the testimony of his own works and on his Father’s support, and with this he meets the requirements of law his opponents demand.


Our world continues to need that Light which is Jesus, his teaching and his ministry. This is why those of us that have been incorporated into his life through baptism are required to remain in him, the Light of the World.


REFLECTION: Christ comes to remind us: "I am the Light of the world".  The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us: "He who believes in him does not remain in darkness.  The disciple of Jesus continues in his word so as to know the truth [that] will make them free and that sanctifies.”  (No. 2466).  We, being baptized, are called to be the light of the world.  How?  By preaching the "Gospel of love", as taught by Mother Jeanne Chezard de Matel, with the example of our lives and the testimony of our word.  Is our life a reflection of the "gospel of love"?  How can we reflect ourselves in it?


Incarnate Word: I adore you and love you with all my heart
