One Like Us: Reflections on the Healing Ministry of Jesus

November 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15 – $35

9:00 AM – 12 Noon Central Time
Saturday, November 7, 2020

The Illinois Members of the NACC invite you to join us for a virtual gathering featuring Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P.
Gathering will be held on ZOOM

The Incarnation of Jesus means that, though he is the Son of God, Jesus is one like us (Heb 4:15), having experienced a full range of emotions, struggles, successes, and failures. Far from removing himself from the pain and suffering of his day, Jesus reached out in compassion, restored those who were suffering, and returned frequently to his source of strength. This presentation will address three questions:

  1. What did Jesus do?
  2. Why did he do it?
  3. How was he able to keep doing it?

By answering these questions, we will come to experience more deeply that Jesus is one like us, and in our service to others, we are also one like him.


Our Presenter:
Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P.
Professor of New Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, IL
