My Reflection for Thursday May 2, Saint Athanasius, Bishop and Doctor of the Church: John 15:9-11


My Reflection:
What will separate us from the love of Jesus? It’s none other than sin! Every time we sin we create a space between us and Jesus. How about Jesus? Does He distance Himself from us whenever we sin? Jesus is always on the move towards us always offering us His unconditional love, regardless if we sin or not.

Such is the love of Jesus for all of us. Always forbearing and patient it stretches until eternity always ready to embrace us once again. But we must not also try to test the endurance of Jesus love for us. For example, we continue to sin because at the back of our minds we know that we can go to Jesus anytime. And ask for His forgiveness through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

What if in the process of committing sin we meet a tragic accident? Where will we end-up? Of course it’s no brainer that we will be in the fiery furnace of hell. That’s why it’s very important for all of us to take advantage of this offer of Jesus to remain in His love by repenting from all of our sins while we still have time. …
