St. John XXIII

Luke 11:5-13

The prophet Malachi and St. Luke help us today to have a positive understanding of a God who loves and is not waiting to punish us. God sends his Son to demonstrate that love, a love that saw us as sheep without a shepherd, a love that fed us in our hunger, a love that forgave sins, a love that died for us so that we might have eternal life. It is into the arms of a loving and merciful God that we place our lives and ask to be filled with that Holy Spirit which will lead and guide us.
