In our own day, we are seemingly overwhelmed by difficult news, and we may wonder where in the world God is in all of this. We may feel like we are light years away from the realization of the reign of God. But through Jesus Christ, we hear the gospel message that the Kingdom of God is happening now. It is a process of redeeming and healing the Creation, in which we are being called to participate.

-Br. Jim Woodrum, SSJE
