Quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church

III. Christ Jesus -- "Mediator and Fullness of All Revelation"

There will be no further Revelation

66 "The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. "Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.

Fear and Love
Did you know that the opposite of Love is fear?  Let us describe some of the key aspects of each or the fruits.

Love: Patient, Kind, willing to suffer without a desire to retaliate, turns the other cheek, humble.

Fear: Anger, hate, jealousy, arrogant, apathetic, anxiety.

I would like to repeat the words with which I began my ministry as Bishop of Rome and Pastor of the universal Church; "Do not be afraid! Open, indeed, open wide the doors to Christ! Open your hearts, your lives, your doubts, your difficulties, your joys and your affections to his saving power, and let him enter your hearts. "Do not be afraid! Christ knows what is in man. He alone knows it". I said this on 22 October 1978. I repeat it with the same conviction, with the same force today, seeing the hope of the Church and of the world shining in your eyes. Yes, let Christ govern your lives; serve him with love. To serve Christ is freedom! --Pope John Paul II
