Once your heart has awakened, you will see around you many others who are waiting for a light. Let them not call out to you in vain. – Joseph Ratzinger
As God’s Church, we must bring in those we have excluded and those who have excluded themselves. All are welcome here. Sit. Eat. Warm yourselves by the fire. Stay. You are loved. If our rules and dogma exclude you, it is we who are lost and excluded.
Jesus refused no one.
Let not the foreigner say, when he would join himself to the Lord, “The Lord will surely exclude me from his people.” – Isaiah 56:3
