You belong to us because you belong to Christ! The good news is that Christ is the host here today and he welcomes you as
a part of his body. The words from the Gospel are addressed to you:
Peace be with you.
All people of good will are welcome here: that’s the really Good News!
If you have been away, you can come back; If you’ve been living in darkness, you can come to the light; if you haven’t been able to believe without seeing him, look around you: the Body of Christ has come to Mass today. Sinners are welcome, saints too. Everyone is welcome to come to Christ, our Lord and our God indeed!
