We're a part of the great plan of salvation. We have a story. How well do we know our story? The goal for the Diocese of Manchester is that everyone know our story, and that we're always growing deeper in our understanding of it at every stage of formation.
The Bible tells the story of God calling a people to himself, the story of God raising up a family. As Church we proclaim the message of salvation, which most certainly begins with the forgiveness of our sins; but there's so much more! Through Jesus' act of perfect love on the cross, the gates of heaven are opened and we're invited to become the adopted sons and daughters of the heavenly Father. The story of salvation is a dramatic unfolding of God's family, the story of a Father who longs so deeply for the love of his children. Slowly but surely, the Father was preparing the hearts of his people to receive the full revelation of his mercy. Slowly but surely, he was drawing humanity deeper into the mystery of his covenant love (the mutual gift of self).
