Lumen Gentium, No. 3


in ,

The Church, or, in other words, the kingdom of Christ now present in mystery, grows visibly through the power of God in the world.

The church grows and it is a visible reminder of God’s ongoing presence and influence in our lives. Am I the fertile soil that enables the growth of the Church?

God, my loving Father, I thank you for the gift of Holy Mother Church. Like a branch gracefully extends from the stem, I pray for the Church to flourish. Help me to be a person actively contributing to the growth of the Church. Amen.
