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.”

.

– John 3:16 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

“For God so loved the world…”

How precious we must be in the eyes of the Creator!

Christ’s death is the supreme sign of God’s love for us.

His self-surrender is a pressing call to respond to His great love for us.

.

“So that everyone who believes in Him…”

Jesus demands that we have faith in Him

as a first prerequisite to sharing in His love.

Faith brings us out of darkness into the light,

and sets us on the road to salvation.

QUOTE…

.

"For God so loved the world

that He gave His only Son for its salvation.

All our religion is a revelation of God’s kindness, mercy and love for us.

‘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 (Gal 2:20).

Each of us can and must repeat it for himself

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

.

– Pope Paul VI

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord and my God, You loved me

and You gave Yourself for me!
