Pause for thought

An excerpt from the Advent homily given by Bishop Alan Hopes, auxiliary of Westminster Diocese, on the occasion of his parish visit to Sacred Heart Church.

Jesus says to us:

Stay close to me: you too are made in God’s own image, glorious with all your own possibilities.

Stay close to me: I will transform your understanding and your living and you will be alive in the Spirit;

Stay close to me – I will open for you the doors of eternity and your destiny will be to become one with God himself.

Stay close to me. You are mine. I believe in you – and in me you will be with me forever.
