Wisdom become flesh, spirit roars, life transformed.

God's all-encompassing love enters the world in the person of Jesus Christ, through the power of the Spirit. This love heals and forgives us, renews the cosmos and calls us to a conversion from sinful attitudes and practices to share in the divine life. In Jesus Christ God gives the gift of Godself, offering light amidst darkness and inviting a response of faith, hope and love. The Spirit comes to dwell in our hearts, empowering our response.
