Note from Fr. Edwin:

There are people who believe that God is far away; he is remote, enthroned in his own world and does not care for people. Some others take God for a tyrant, a strict judge who punishes human beings, to enforce his commandments. In many religions there are hundreds of gods, who intervene in human affairs. But Jesus proclaims a different God. The God of Jesus is the One who is concerned about us, nay, One who becomes like man, and loves us as a Father. His love is expressed in words and deeds. He is a God who loves us so much that He sends His only Son to the World. That means: 

-          God takes initiative in the salvation event, all because He loves us.

-          God is love. In the history of salvation God does everything for the sake of us.

-          God loves the whole world, not a particular race or a nation. Nobody is excluded form God’s love. St. Augustine says, “God loves each one of us as if there was only one of us to love.” 

Jesus is the revelation of God’s love, the perfect expression of the Father. His love is manifested in sacrificing himself for others. He said, “A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends.” Yes, Jesus died on the cross because he loved us; he forgave sins and reconciled us with the Father. Through his death he brought us to life when we were dead through sin. We know for sure that God loves us because He sent Jesus to us. Jesus loved us and died for us on the cross. Thus the Gospels inspire us, enkindle hope in us and urge us to love and forgive like Jesus who loved and lived for us. How do we respond to his abiding love? Let us thank him and praise him in the Eucharist.
