While reflecting on the gospel reading from St. John (Jn 15:9-17), Fr. Riccardo discusses discipleship. Fr. John reads a sermon from Dietrich Bonhoeffer titled Costly Grace. Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor and theologian who was executed by the Nazis in Flossenburg prison camp in 1945. Fr. John reminds the congregation that to surrender to God leads to great joy.
