The Mission of Christ

By Sister Norma Raupple

Christians recall Jesus’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, which is also the beginning of Holy Week.

In the words to a song by Rory Cooney, “Jerusalem My Destiny,” Jesus says, “…though I cannot see the end for me, I cannot turn away.”

As people of faith, we too “… have set our hearts for the way: this journey is our destiny. Let no one walk alone – the journey makes us one”.

Jesus was faithful to his mission and God was faithful to Him.

God is faithful to us. Through our ups and downs, our dyings and risings, and has called us to walk with others, especially those most in need.

We have been sent to the people of our time and place through our faith-based, not-for-profit corporation. We have been sent to walk with them on the journey.

As we move forward together, our compassionate presence will make us one.
