We are all called to be ministers of the good news that God has become a man in Christ Jesus, and that His Kingdom is here and now. We must live our lives in such a way that they attract others to the Lord. We must become our Savior's living bread, and lovingly offer the 'living bread' of our daily lives first to the Holy Trinity, and then to our loved ones and neighbors. May we love one another just as He loves us.
