Come, Lord! Show us the path to TRUTH

4st Sunday of Lent B, March 10, 2024

In truth, I will never live long enough to fully express how immense God’s mercy is. It is because of his mercy that we will be saved. ‌Let us remember the times when, in our childhood, all the sermons we heard talked about what we had to do to and all the sacrifices we had to make to get into heaven. I don’t want to criticize anyone, but it is high time that we believe that it is thanks to God and His great love that we are granted heaven. It is by His love that we will know eternal life with Him. In his letter for today, Saint Paul repeats several times: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. ”

In the Gospel for today, Saint John emphasizes God’s love for us. “Whoever believes in him is not condemned. ” In this text, the verb “believe” is repeated five times. Here, God asks us to seek truth in our lives and believe in He who is light.

Psalm 137 tells us: “May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you!” “‌You are blessed, Father of infinite mercy, You who offers Your forgiveness to all humanity: may the joy of Your tenderness make each and every one of us an artisan of your work of love and peace.” — Louis-André Naud

Saint Augustine writes the following about God: “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” We are made to find God, and the denial of God in our lives is a tragedy. It is like the exile to Babylon mentioned in the first reading. But God so loved the world that He gave us his only Son. Through Jesus Christ, God expanded the horizon of our expectations and our joys. He loves each and every one of us as if there were no one else in the world. He constantly calls us to Him, no matter how far away we are.
