“[Jesus] asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” Mark 8:27

He is not the Messiah of politics, power, and prestige.

He is the Messiah of compassion, comfort, and caring.

Today I will embody the love, mercy, and kindness of Jesus who reminds us we are made in the image of God’s love and goodness.

    Great insight! I will include your insight in my homily during Mass for the students at Mt. Holyoke College, S. Hadley this evening at 6:30 p.m. “Jesus is not the Messiah of politics, power, or prestige.”
