A New Reformation

The Reformation was a process which was generated by a misunderstanding and manipulation of personal faith in God and his Son by the church.

A new reformation is urgently needed because of a lack of understanding of the nature of love and of the sanctity of the person. Jesus said: “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25, v40).

We need to embrace these words and approach each person we meet, friend or stranger, with a self-giving love, just as Jesus showed us. In earlier generations people blessed each other. This expression of personal encounter is rarely heard now. We need to learn again how to bless others with selflessness.

The theses to be pinned onto doors everywhere are as follows: Bless and love all you meet.

Discover as you do this that Christ dwells within you. Discover as you do this that God is in this simplest of actions and feelings.
