LOS ANGELES — The answer to society's dysfunctions can be found in one person: Jesus Christ.
That message is at the core of a new pastoral letter by Los Angeles Archbishop Jose H. Gomez — “For Greater Things You Were Born” — released March 1, Ash Wednesday.
The letter is a 16,000-word meditation on human nature, which the archbishop maintains can only be understood in relation to God.
“Jesus Christ alone knows who we are and He is the one teacher of life,” he wrote. “He alone shows us the way to live in order to lead a truly human life.”
