El amor, la muerte, y la Resurrección

Escucha mp3
Homilía en Novena de la Medalla Milagrosa, 29 Abril 2013
1 Jn 4, 7-10.16-19

Una frase en el Cantar de los Cantares (8, 6) nos dice: “Fuerte como la muerte es el amor.” Y reconocemos este deseo dentro de todo amor, ¿no?

Gen 22:1-2, 9-13, 15-18; Ps 116; Rom 8:31-34; Mark 9:2-10

Surely the most famous verse in the Bible is John 3:16. Seen on bumper stickers, t-shirts, and banners at televised sporting events, it reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” It is famous because it encapsulates so much of the Gospel: the immense love of God the Father; shown in his gift of God the Son, Jesus Christ; for the purpose of drawing us to eternal life.
