Quote of the Day

Fr. James Martin, SJ: “Honestly, this is just amazing to me, and amazingly moving. The Holy Door is not at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, but at the Cathedral in Bangui, in the Central African Republic. The Year of Mercy is inaugurated not in Vatican City, but in one of the poorest and most war-torn countries in the world. The Prince of Peace comes not to the wealthy but to a poor family in Nazareth. Jesus goes first not to the powerful but to the powerless. God is a God of surprises–always going beyond our boundaries and always inviting us to the margins. Amen.”
