Speak Lord: Loving Lord

Our Lady, L’Abbaye St Pierre, Moissac. (c) 2018, Allen Morris

Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us, by letting us be called God’s children; and that is what we are. Because the world refused to acknowledge him,therefore it does not acknowledge us.

My dear people, we are already the children of God but what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed; all we know is, that when it is revealed we shall be like him because we shall see him as he really is.My dear people, if we cannot be condemned by our own conscience, we need not be afraid in God’s presence, and whatever we ask him, we shall receive, because we keep his commandments and live the kind of life that he wants.

His commandments are these: that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and that we love one another as he told us to. Whoever keeps his commandments lives in God and God lives in him. We know that he lives in us by the Spirit that he has given us.

Second reading for the Feast of the Holy Family
1 John 3:1-2,21-24

The Mother is the child of the Son, and is beloved.

We are made brothers and sisters of the creating Word,united in time with the One who was before all time.

And we are loved.
