Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise Jesus! God the Father loves you so much that He chose to create you. You are His special child; you are His choice. Although you sinned, God's love for you did not change, and He sent his Son as expiation for your sins (see 1 Jn 4:10). Jesus suffered a terrible death on the cross to save you. What is your response to the immense love God has for you? You must return God's love both to Him and to others. We "love because He first loved us" (Jn 4:19).
The better we know someone, the more deeply we can love them. One Bread, One Body (OBOB) is published to help you and others to know God more deeply through reading and studying the Scriptures, particularly the daily Mass readings. OBOB is meant to encourage you and others to attend daily Mass as often as possible so you can receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Decide to love God more deeply through your reading of this book.
As you grow in your love for God and others, consider if God is calling you to:
- Come to one of our Discipleship Retreats.
- Help us build our new Retreat Center.
- Help distribute OBOB.
- Become a co-worker with Presentation Ministries.
- Become a student with Guadalupe Bible College.
- Start or join a home-based Christian community.
- Become an intercessor to pray for Presentation Ministries.
Click around our website or call us at (513) 662-5378 to learn more about any of the above.
Please pray about what donation the Holy Spirit is asking you to make for this book. This book is not free, but everyone can afford it. We depend on the Lord and on the donations He inspires you to send.
May God bless us all as we abide in His love (see Jn 15:9).
Your brothers and sister in Jesus,
Deacon George Schmidl, Mark Schuermann, Chris Jasek, and Judy Erwin
