Knowing Christ & His Message through Scripture, the Catechism, & the Catholic Church

We should be joyful…We know the outcome.

We know that Christ has won our salvation for us…We have reason to be joyful!  If only we faithfully accept God’s great & loving gift. Let us, therefore, be faithful to the One who has loved us unto death.  The Church pauses & reminds us, during our Lenten journey, to celebrate this victory won for our salvation: “Laetare Sunday” or, in English, “Joy Sunday.”

We know the outcome…

We know that God (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit) love us.

All we have to do is: Love God in return, & love our neighbor (be kind to all, be patient with all, do not think ourselves better than others…).  Today is a good day to reflect on how faithful, how joyful, & how loving we are.  Do we need to make changes?
