Friends of the Rosary:
Almost 30,000 pilgrims and 61 bishops from the U.S. are participating in the World Youth Day (WYD) gathering in Lisbon, Portugal.
Quoting St. John Paul II, Bishop Robert Barron, one of the key figures of the U.S. delegation, said to the pilgrims:
“Jesus Christ is the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega; he is the king of the new world; he is the secret of history; he is the key to our destiny. He is the mediator, the bridge, between heaven and earth. He is more perfectly than anyone else the Son of Man because he is the Son of God, eternal and infinite. He is the son of Mary, blessed among all women, his mother according to the flesh, and our mother through the sharing in the Spirit of his mystical body.”
“It is his name that we proclaim to the ends of the earth and throughout all ages.”
Bishop Barron — in the picture — invited pilgrims to share with others the real Jesus. “When you preach the real Christ, not a watered-down Christ, it lights a fire in people. and they want to know more.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
