Jesus made two promises to his followers.
I am frequently asked by concerned persons to explain the difference, if any, between Catholic faith and non-Catholic, Christian faith.
At the Last Supper, when Our Lord was speaking intimately to his followers for the final time before his death, he informed them that he would shortly be leaving them to return to the Father.
When Jesus began his public ministry and gathered followers to begin with them the journey to the promised land, what did he do?
The clearest illustration of the nature of the spiritual journey to God is found in the development of relations between Jesus and his followers.
How do we move along the spiritual journey to the experience of the Father's loving presence?
As noted earlier, Catholic faith in the omnipresence of God calls for two important distinctions in its application to the journey of salvation.
Affirming God's omnipresence, as we have done, emphasizes that God is indwelling or immanent in all things. Our day-to-day activities tend to hide this fact from us.
The most common symbol of the dynamic of Christian salvation is that of a "journey".
