‘The Thought’

You’ve Got A Friend

The readings have to do with the limits of our knowledge. We are mere humans. We have limits about how God works too. For this reason we should never be presumptuous about having plenty of time. Nor should we imagine that doing the same ol’ same ol’ is enough. God offers mercy and forgiveness within our human time that he affords us. We have free wills and we make life decisions and those decisions have eternal consequences. We cannot know how God will treat us. God’s knowledge of us is greater than our self-knowledge. God’s knowledge is not measured by the degree of knowledge we have, but by kind. God’s knowledge is somewhat shared but completely other. We can know something about God by what we deduct but it’s limited and we only get snapshots offered by the prophets.

We are the Jesuit Church of Baltimore

Welcome to St. Ignatius Catholic Community in the Mount Vernon section of downtown Baltimore. Our mission is that of every Christian community—Live the Gospel, whatever it takes.

Over a thousand people have found a spiritual home here—people of all ages, cultures, and in different seasons of life. Families are encouraged, children are nurtured, older people are supported, and college students are challenged.

As a Jesuit parish, we encourage people to reflect on their experiences and to discern God’s presence in their lives. Our desire is to nurture lay leadership as well as personal faith a “faith that does justice” by way of solidarity with the poor and dedication to the greater good.
