God so loved the world...
Today's Gospel tells us that God so loved the world that "he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life."
God still loves the world and I am sure He is trying to inspire us to care for it. We have been so careless and are using so much of the world's resources without calculating the consequences and so now we have the great problem of climate change. That is just one of the ecological issues facing us. Then, we have the wealthy getting more wealth while the poor are getting poorer; we have people who are homeless and hungry; people who are being persecuted, tortured and killed. What does God's heart feel as he sees the way we are living on this earth?
Let us pray and act; everything we do or do not do counts as we are all helping to build the Cosmic Christ. We are in evolution and we need to be aware of what we are doing to our world and all who dwell in it.
Now, I do not know where this reflection has come from, but I will leave it as it seemed to write itself. Just remember that God loves the world and each creature in it including you.
I continue to strive to live the three attitudes of hopefulness, letting myself be surprised by God, and living in joy!
