Today’s Question:
God loves everyone, but within a time frame and within limits… Do you agree?

Answer: No. God’s love is truly infinite and inestimable. Only our perception of that divine love is limited; and that’s primarily due to our fallen human nature, which has been mortally wounded, by sin.

God loves us unconditionally?

Q: God loves us unconditionally?

If God loves us unconditionally, why is his love on condition of our belief in Him? And before you say some people “choose” to go to hell: Puh-LEEEEZE give a more sane answer.

A: When one has freedom of choice and of action, one is also free to reject unconditional love, much as a drug addict prefers his habit to the love of friends and family.

In such cases, the family typically still loves the addict, but due to the addict’s actions, that love is unable to make the critical difference.

The same thing also appears to be true in terms of God’s love … at least in relation to the natural aspects of our existence.

When one considers the supernatural though, anything is possible, including much of what we still do not fully understand.

God is the only competent judge of all things human. His love is both unconditional and inestimable, while his power and might remains infinite.

Those who truly know God also know that … except perhaps for a few of the most “hardened” of all human hearts … love will indeed find a way.

Since Jesus is “the way” it is incumbent upon all of us to assist in the “cause” of our own salvation, whenever possible. In a very real way, it is the least we can do!

John 3:16-17  For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God sent his Son into the world, not to judge the world: but that the world may be saved by him.

And in the end, that’s what faith in God is all about.

Fr. Tom Euteneuer: Walking with Jesus Christ Through the Week Called Holy

A short excerpt from Fr. E’s weekly newsletter:

On Holy Thursday two great institutions are commemorated. Let us not overlook Our Lord’s firm desire to establish them as perpetual gifts for us: one is the sacred priesthood and the other is the Eucharist. He said that He “greatly desired” to eat that Passover with His disciples and that is because He wanted to entrust to certain unworthy men the awesome task of handing down the memorial of His inestimable Sacrifice “in remembrance of Him” to the end of time. Will we thank Him from the depths of our hearts this week for the infinite richness of His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist and for the blessing of His priest brothers who bring that Gift to us?

As we continue to walk with Him we reach the week’s summit on Friday – Calvary – but we notice that He is now accompanied in His suffering by His Mother. She was not at the Last Supper because She was not given the gift of the priesthood, but She walked with Him to another Altar of Sacrifice and stood there in perfect union with His redemptive suffering. Let us walk with the Mother of Sorrows on this sorrowful day to derive the deepest possible graces from the Cross that She so perfectly shared in. Then, when He is put in the tomb, let us stay by Her side on Holy Saturday, in vigil, contemplating, grieving for the sins that put Him there and waiting in “joyful hope” for the Day that will never end.
