There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him.  8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light. And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" He confessed, he did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ." And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" And he answered, "No." They said to him then, "Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" He said, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, `Make straight the way of the Lord,' as the prophet Isaiah said." Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. They asked him, "Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?" John answered them, "I baptize with water; but among you stands one whom you do not know, even he who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie." This took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing

MAKING CHRIST'S CHURCH

We love our Church, with all her limitations, and her riches too, she is our Mother. For this reason we respect her, and while we do so, we dream that she will never lose her beauty. May she be the Church where it is good to live, where your can breathe, and say what you think-a Church of Freedom. A Church which listens before speaking and welcomes instead of judging, forgives without wishing to condemn, and announces rather than denounces. A Church of mercy and of where the simplest of our brothers and sisters will understand what the others are saying. Our Church will be where the wisest of leaders will know that he doesn't know all, and where the people of God will be revealed in its entirety-a Church of wisdom.
May our Church be where the Holy Spirit will be able to feel at home because everything has not been foreseen, settled and decided in advance. An open Church, a Church where the audacity to do something new and will be stronger than the habit of doing things as they have always been done. A Church where everyone can pray in their own language and express themselves according to their culture, and live with their own history. A Church of which people will not say how well they are organized, but say see how they love one another. A Church of the city, a Church of suburbs, and of the streets.
Lift up you heads and look - the Lord is with us and with you.

-Adapted from a 1966 Pastoral letter of Bishop Guy Droubaix-SntDenis, France
