News and Readings:


Jesus certainly knew anger and impatience, sorrow and despair—this we read about. But I imagine that most of the time, the face of Jesus was a face of love in the full spectrum of its colors: joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, humility, compassion. I would guess, that above all else, Jesus’ face radiated joy, an infectious joy that delighted in the presence of other human beings.

-Br. Mark Brown
