‘Love can bring people together’ (Pittsburgh, PA)

The heart of Christ is on fire with love and can change our lives, said Father Charles Bober. Seeing others as Christ does can make all the difference in the world.

“We don’t see what the world sees,” he said. “We see Christ in one another. It’s the love of Christ that compels us.”

Father Bober, pastor of St. Kilian in Adams/Cranberry Township, said that love can bring people together. He spoke during an Evening of Thanksgiving in observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation June 29 at St. Kilian.

The gathering, which featured Catholics and Lutherans in Southwestern Pennsylvania, was the second in a series of three observances to mark the anniversary. The first, an evening of repentance, was held April 4 at St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cathedral in Munhall.

Greensburg Bishop Edward Malesic presided over the evening. Scripture was read by Bishop Kurt Kusserow of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
