Last week, Cardinal Timothy Dolan offered a presentation regarding the New Evangelization. While the full text is certainly a must read, we are dissecting some worth quotes over the next many days.
God does not satisfy the thirst of the human heart with a proposition, but with a Person, whose name is Jesus. The invitation implicit in the Missio ad gentes and the New Evangelization is not to a doctrine but to know, love, and serve — not a something, but a Someone… (We are invited) to friendship with Jesus… which is the way you defined sanctity.
There it is – love of a Person, a relationship at the root of out faith.
