News and Readings:


The gospel demands a response from us. We can either choose to turn away or we can choose to follow. In either case we will be changed. The question is not “will we be changed by the Gospel”, but “how will we be changed by it?” We may not do mighty things for God, but God will certainly do mighty things for us and in so doing shall change us.

-Br. James Koester 
Society of Saint John the Evangelist
