Faith Moment Destiny 6

Transcript of audio:

Thomas Merton, who for a brief period of time in the early 1940s taught English at St. Bonaventure University in Olean, was a well-known, Catholic writer and thinker who focused intensely on social justice issues.  A Trappist monk, Thomsa Merton once said, "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with one another." 

Merton's words are quite fitting, since our readings this week on the Ascension of Jesus into heaven point us to our destiny. We are destined for eternal life with God, the source and summit of all love.

If, as Thomas Merton points out, love is our true destiny, then we will find our greatest happiness both here on earth and one day in heaven by loving one another as Jesus did.

Always remember God's will for us is to live in love now so that we may ascend to everlasting life with Him, as Jesus did.
