Bem-aventurados os mansos, porque eles herdarão a terra; Bem-aventurados os que têm fome e sede de justiça, porque eles serão fartos; Bem-aventurados os misericordiosos, porque eles alcançarão misericórdia; Bem-aventurados os limpos de coração, porque eles verão a Deus; Bem-aventurados os pacificadores, porque eles serão chamados filhos de Deus; Bem-aventurados os que sofrem perseguição por causa da justiça, porque deles é o reino dos céus; Bem-aventurados sois vós, quando vos injuriarem e perseguirem e, mentindo, disserem todo o mal contra vós por minha causa.(Mt.5)

God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son

God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son
"God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son, so that not all who believe in Him may die, but have eternal life". Creation is the work of God's love and exists for God Himself. Everything was created by love and for love, for eternal communion. Despite being the fruit of love, man said no to life with God, opting for himself. He left the Creator and embraced the creature, became an idolater. God did not abandon his creature. For love, the Father gave His Only Begotten Son, His Beloved, allowing Him to die, lest the one who believes in Him, the one who sinned, who became worthy of death, may die. Through Jesus Christ, the Father gives man the possibility of a new life, the eternal life, for which he was made.


. "God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world". Condemnation is not a punishment from God, but a consequence for one who does not turn to his Creator, who does not make a radical choice for God, who places his life above everything, who values ​​his interests more than the will of God, who became an idolater. Whoever adheres to Jesus Christ, making his life available to the greater good for himself and for all, will conquer eternal life. It is worth mentioning that God's desire is man's salvation. So that this could happen, he went to great lengths, sending us the Son himself, who, when suspended on a tree, made the sign of the bronze serpent in the desert. There they looked up at the "high", looking at the serpent; here, they look upward, looking at Jesus Christ. In both moments, it was necessary to look, more precisely to see. It is known that in order to see well it is necessary, first of all, to be inwardly free, to have love for the truth and justice, and still have a life according to the Commandments of the Lord, a right life according to the will of God.
