“God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. (JN 3: 16)”
God doesn’t want for us a good life, even life in abundance, but “eternal life.” He wants us to be with Him in Heaven, to live for eternity in love and His presence. Whatever we do with love, whenever we are a gift of selves, free, creative, and joyful, we are coming closer to Him and to a lifestyle that will be ours forever.
“God so love the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
