The Word was made flesh, and lived among us

The Word was made flesh, and lived among us

What does being a Christian mean to you? Pope Francis says, ‘The Church is fruitful and a mother when she witnesses to Jesus Christ.’ Being a Christian is a friendship with Jesus and working in partnership with him. Without this Christian life is dull and sterile.

Christianity is not a school of ideas or a collection of beautiful temples and lovely art; it is a living people who follow Jesus and give witness to him every day.

To spread the message of Jesus we firstly have to receive it through Eucharist, prayer and reading the gospels. With a deepening message within ourselves we can then become the friend and partner Jesus wants us to be and be the body of Christ in the world today.
