Go, for I am with you

The last point in the address of the Pope to that International
Congress on Catechesis also is for all of us to reflect on today.
The love of Christ compels us to go out. The Pope says that "starting anew with Christ means not being afraid to go with him to the outskirts. Jesus tells us to "Go, for I am with you." This is what is so beautiful for us; it is what guides us." If we go out to bring his  Gospel with love, with a true apostolic spirit, with parrhesia, he walks with us, he goes ahead of us, and he gets there first....God is always ahead of us! When we think about going far away...we may be a bit afraid, but in fact God is already there."
