Costly Discipleship - Reflection for April 9, 2015

posted May 5, 2015, 8:01 AM by Parish Administrator

April 9, 2015.  The 70th anniversary of the death of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, hanged at the age of 39 in Flossenbürg concentration camp. 

"The messengers of Jesus will be hated to the end of time. They will be blamed for all the division which rend cities and homes. Jesus and his disciples will be condemned on all sides for undermining family life, and for leading the nation astray; they will be called crazy fanatics and disturbers of the peace. The disciples will be sorely tempted to desert their Lord. But the end is also near, and they must hold on and persevere until it comes. Only he will be blessed who remains loyal to Jesus and his word until the end."
