God's Marvelous Choice

Cycle BEasterWeek 6

by Bishop Robert BarronMay 06, 2018


Today's Gospel presents the distinction between a generic spirituality, which emphasizes our decision for God, and authentic Christian faith, which is the recognition that God has chosen us in Christ. It is God's choice—his election of us in Christ as not only his followers but his friends—that matters most.
