From the introductory remarks:We want to talk to you tonight about and enter into a conversation with you basically about Jesus, about the way of Jesus and his pattern of living, and also a competing pattern of living that is offered to us and hopefully it is to deepen our hope. We want to talk about Jesus, his way of living, and what he might offer to us to give us hope. And like Fr. Schlegel said, I am looking for hope, I think we're all looking for deeper hope in these days. And we would invite all of you, whatever tradition you come from, I would assume most of you are Catholic, but if you are from another tradition, another Christian tradition or if you're from a Jewish tradition, or a tradition of another faith. What I think is really important is that all of us try to go deeper into our own faith tradition, go down as far as we can, and at the same time be in conversation with people who are also searching for a more hopeful and just world. So, on the one hand to go as deep as we can into our own tradition, but also be in conversation with people who come at life with another tradition.
