TODAY’S WORD…

Jesus said,

“For God so loved the world

that He gave His only Son,

so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish

but may have eternal life.”

“For God so loved the world…”

What Grace!

What Great Love!

.

“that He gave His only Son…”

What Great Kindness!

What a Great Sacrifice!

What a Great Son!

God created us,

He redeemed us,

He loves us with an amazing love!

He waits for us – every day –

as eagerly as the father of the prodigal son did.

He wants us with Him.

He wants us to respond to Him with all our love.

How precious we must be to Him!

.

But He made us free

…and the choice is ours alone.

QUOTE…

.

“‘God is love’,

that is, love poured forth unsparingly.

All is summed up in this supreme truth,

which explains and illuminates everything.

The story of Jesus must be seen in this light.

`(He) loved me, St. Paul writes.

Each of us can and must repeat it for himself

– ‘He loved me, and gave Himself for me’"

.

– Pope Paul VI.

I may earn eternal life with You.

Amen.
