Quotes from this Download Set:

“In our society, even with all of our connectivity, we are increasingly experiencing alienation in a deeper and more cutting way."

"We’re all called in our own ways to receive grace, and also to generate it.”

“If we look back at those people who were really significant in our lives, they actually made us feel a kind of belonging, an inclusion.”

“Faith is the ability to sustain the state of not knowing.”

“Jesus had an intimate relationship with God, which means he had an intimate relationship with his divinity. He belonged to himself.”

“Jesus, this God-man, this enlightened being, is also someone who experiences his extraordinary human vulnerability.”

“Jesus had such a sensitivity to anything or anybody that felt like they were excluded. That was how his compassion operated.”
