Journeying with the Founder Day #65

We are loved because we are incorporated into the Body of Christ, and Jesus incorporates us so we can be loved. This is the mystery of God’s love, the mystery of Jesus’s love. According to St. Paul we are the wild tree that has been grafted onto the fruitful olive tree that is Jesus. This grafting did not only take place when Jesus lived His earthly life in Palestine. He continues to graft us on to Him down through the centuries. Every Christian is inserted into Jesus Christ, and we reach the Father through this insertion into grace, on to Jesus the Vine, the true olive tree. Jesus has taught us that nobody can go to the Father except through Him Whom
the Father has sent. (Charity)
