Reborn, renewed

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.~ John 3:16

Dear family and friends, this Holy Week I pray that the love of God is resurrected, reborn, and renewed inside your hearts, giving you everlasting hope.

Believers know that the presence of evil is always accompanied by the presence of good, by grace… Where evil grows, there the hope for good also grows….In the love that pours forth from the heart of Christ, we find hope for the future of the world. Christ has redeemed the world: “By his wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
~ Pope John Paul II

  1. Oh, I loved this post! Where evil grows, hope for good also grows. One has to love, admire and respect that philosophy. That is something I have gone many a round with people who say the world is doomed, humanity is rotten, it’s all gloom. I believe as long as there is life, as long as there is breath, as long as there is faith, hope lives. We must always keep our eye on the light, even when it looks very dim, it is still there, ever present. My Mom used to say sometimes when it is darkest, that is when the light shines the brightest. Wise lady, that one. A blessed Easter to you and yours, amiga!
