Basil Talking About The Kingdom of Heaven

To understand and speak about the Kingdom of God it is necessary to keep four aspects of that kingdom in mind. The Kingdom of God is present now; it is at the same time a future reality. It is internal to the hearts of the baptised; it is at the same time an external reality in the world. To emphasise one aspect and to neglect the others, is to present an incomplete picture of the Kingdom, and can lead us badly astray; it can give a distorted view of the role of the church in the world.

To Be A Pilgrim by Basil Hume O.S.B.

God is in love with us, and when we realise that, then we can seek the Lord our God with confidence, and with all our hearts, soul and mind. It is then that we can grow in His love and see God’s Kingdom within the hearts of all God’s People. God is coming! If you need to ask when, where, and how, you are not ready. Repent and be baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

We should not tolerate attacks on the Gay Community, or Racism, or Sexism or Strangers From Another Country for we are all Brothers and Sisters. Do not judge and you will not be judge without facts and that’s Jesus Job. for God is humble and gentle, and if we forgive those who have sinned against us, then God will forgive us our sins.

This is a time to forgive those who have hurt us, even if those sins seem unforgivable now, for when we draw close to God’s Glorious Heart, we will see just how much God is in love with us and all of humanity. It is then that we can forgive even those sins which seem impossible to forgive at the moment.

May The Love Joy Peace of Christ Be with you Amen!
