…I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
No longer will they have need to teach their friends and relatives
how to know the LORD.
All, from least to greatest, shall know me, says the LORD,
for I will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more. (Jer 31:33-34)
Jeremiah uttered this great oracle of the “New Covenant” sometimes called “The Gospel before the Gospel”. This passage contains his most sublime teaching and is a landmark in the study of the Hebrew Scriptures. (New American Bible)
The passage was written in about 600 B.C. Now I will try to rewrite it in it’s most concise way: Love and know that there are no mistakes, no such thing as failure only choice and feedback, listen, learn and respond to life’s lessons.
We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.
