In today’s second reading and the Gospel reading, we read about the great love of Christ.
St. Paul asks, “What will separate us from the love of Christ?” He then goes on to give a big list of things, none of which “will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” In other words, God loves you always and everywhere, no matter what. And nothing will ever change that.
In the Gospel reading from Matthew 14, we read about Jesus feeding the multitude. Why did He do this? “His heart was moved with pity for them.” He loved them. Each and every one of them. Just as He does you. Always and everywhere, no matter what. And nothing will ever change that.
Father, we thank you for the great love of Jesus, from nothing will ever separate us. May we share that love with all of your children, always and everywhere, no matter what. Amen.
