A team of 200 priests comment on daily Gospel
Liturgical day: Wednesday 2nd of Easter
Gospel text (Jn 3,16-21): «Yes, God so loved the world that He gave his only Son (...). Through him the world is to be saved». Jesus said to Nicodemus, «Yes, God so loved the world that He gave his only Son that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but may have eternal life. God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world; instead, through him the world is to be saved. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned. He who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the Name of the only Son of God. This is how the Judgment is made: Light has come into the world and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For whoever does wrong hates the light and doesn't come to the light for fear that his deeds will be shown as evil. But whoever lives according to the truth comes into the light so that it can be clearly seen that his works have been done in God».
Today Jesus explains Nicodemus that God loved the world so much that He sent down to earth his only Son, so that everyone may have eternal life. 2.000 years ago in Bethlehem, Jesus was born of Virgin Mary. When he started preaching, Jesus said that He came from the Father to whom he would return. !But He wants to return with us!
- Jesus gives us hope, hope that lightens our way in life.
