A Lenten Educational Opportunity to learn about the first Encyclical from Pope Benedict XVI.
Ben Syberg, Our three year seminarian from St. Meinrad
“God is Love” is the ENCYCLICAL LETTER, DEUS CARITAS EST?Written by: THE SUPREME PONTIFF, BENEDICT XVI?TO THE BISHOPS, PRIESTS AND DEACONS,
MEN AND WOMEN RELIGIOUS AND ALL THE LAY FAITHFUL? ON CHRISTIAN LOVE
“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”.
