The Church needs to be as powerless as God Himself. God does not coerce but unveils the beauty and the truth about things without imposing them.
When the Church begins to exercise power, it loses its most profound characteristic, which is divine love. It stops understanding those we are commissioned to save and not to dominate or smash.
God’s power is manifest in human weakness! God’s love always invites us into communion. We, as a Church, are called to be Sacraments of healing and reconciliation.
Advent is about love refreshing itself, being re-energised… renewed.
We are called to invite and embrace into love, and by love all of creation.
