Thought of the Day December 26, 2019 Unconditional love

By 10:09 AM

Reflection by St. Augustine on the mystery of the Incarnation: The Son of God becoming man.

"You would have suffered eternal death, had he not been born in time. Never would you have been freed from sinful flesh, had he not taken on himself the likeness of sinful flesh. You would have suffered everlasting unhappiness, had it not been for this mercy. You would never have returned to life, had he not shared your death. You would have been lost if he had not hastened to your aid. You would have perished, had he not come."

Can we ever sincerely question God's love for us? How much more love can  one give another than a gift of total self? Thank you, Jesus, for your unconditional love. Help me to love you in response.
