June 11, 2017: The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

God so loved the world that God gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send the 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)


How much does God love the world? Though the world is not perfect and holds the potential for evil, still God did not condemn it, but rather, sent his only Son to redeem it. By sacrificing his life for us, Jesus made eternal life possible for all. However, to attain it one must believe in this Son of God, Jesus.


If we embrace the evil in the world, we will be condemned with it. If we respond in love to God’s love and believe in Jesus, we will experience the fullness of life for all eternity.

    Thanks Sr. Carol,
    It sounds so easy, but how do we believe in Jesus and his resurrection?!
