“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” (J 3: 17)
Sometimes we can meet some “theological interpretations” about this coronavirus: Divine punishment, warring, a call to conversion and penance, etc. Is it the same God, Who “did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world”? Still we speak about the same God, God, Who is love? When we, parents, see our children’s bad choices, bad decisions, are we condemning them, expelling them, and asking God to send them a virus or earthquake? Only love is the solution, only love can motivate us, and only God, Who is Love, can save us.
“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.” (Verse before the Gospel)
