Fire & Light

Father Jacques Philippe

"To be Christian is not above all about fulfilling a task, a list of things to do.  It is about welcoming, through faith, the immense gift offered freely to us.  To live the gospel means learning to receive, in our human heart, with its limits and weaknesses, all the richness of the Father's merciful love, letting ourselves be transformed by it day after day, responding freely and generously to it, and sharing it with those whom the Lord places on our path."

In his newest work, Fr. Jacques Philippe, one of the foremost Catholic authors of our time, encourages readers to recognize that Christianity is not a religion of tense and anxious human effort, but of divine grace.
