June 15, 2014: Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. (John 3:16-18)
The creator of the universe loves creation and every part of it.
God loves us so much that God sent his son Jesus to tell us of God’s love and tender care for us.
Death is not the end; our loved ones live in Jesus, who will raise us on the last day. Jesus does not criticize or put us down; he comes to save.
God asks that we believe in Jesus and put our trust in him. When we are weak and need his help, Jesus strengthens us through the gift of God’s Spirit within us.
Today, I praise Father, Son and Spirit. I ask Jesus to help me believe and trust in him. I remember every time I make the sign of the cross that I belong to God: Father, Son and Spirit. I am protected, strengthened and energized by God.
