Quote of the Day

"The community dimension is an essential element in faith and Christian life. Christ came 'to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad' (cf. Jn 11:52). The 'we' of the Church is the community in which Jesus brings us together (cf. Jn 12:32): faith is necessarily ecclesial. And this is important to remember and to live in this time of Lent: each person is aware that he or she does not face the penitential journey alone, but together with many brothers and sisters in the Church."

--Benedict XVI, Homily, February 13, 2013
