Saint Gabriel Church
March 11, 2018
Ultimately, our salvation depends on faith in Jesus Christ. “Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God” (Jn 3:18). Such faith is more than intellectual assent. At the deepest level, Christian faith is complete surrender and openness to the Savior who came “so that everyone who believes in him might not parish but might have eternal life” (Jn 3:16). We are subjects of divine love and the Cross is the supreme manifestation of God’s infinite love for every human being. As we continue our Lenten journey toward Easter, let us gratefully receive the gift of divine love, the only source of our salvation (Eph 2:4, 5), and humbly dedicate ourselves to “the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them” (Eph 2:10).
