God is Love

Posted on 28. Feb, 2013 in NEWS, Parish News, Pope's Message

2013_06The first Encyclical Letter of Pope Benedict XVI was entitled “Deus Caritas Est” Latin for “God is Love”. The following is the first paragraph of this insightful and refreshing presentation of the central truth about God.

“God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (1 Jn 4:16). These words from the First Letter of John express with remarkable clarity the heart of the Christian faith: the Christian image of God and the resulting image of mankind and its destiny. In the same verse, Saint John also offers a kind of summary of the Christian life: “We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us”.
