Thought of the Day December 20, 2023 What if?

By 2:36 PM

 Ever thought about what life would be like if the Word did not become Man? We would still be alienated from God, living in the darkness of our sins. We would not know the Father's love and mercy. We would not share in the gift of the Holy Spirit. Death would be the end of our life, for after death there would be eternal darkness and nothingness. We would try to create our own god to no end. In the words of St. Paul, "For I know that good does not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh. The willing is ready at hand, but doing the good is not. For I do not do the good I want, but I do the evil I do not want. Now if [I] do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me." (Romans 7: 18-20) But thanks be to God The Word became Flesh, sent by the Father to save us and restore us to our God-given relationship. We are blessed! Thank you God!
