"But the gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one, many died, how much more did the grace of God and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ overflow for the many.”… “For to you I have entrusted my cause. Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord for He has rescued the life of the poor.”
We receive many gifts and unfortunately, some of our greatest gifts we take for granted. Consider for a moment the gift of life, of health, of family, of friends. All are important and should be treasured.
St. Paul told the Romans of the gift of Jesus, rescuing us with the gift of grace which overflows, the gift of life in abundance.
The grace of God, offering us the abundant life, has been poured out into our hearts. He sends and we receive, but like any gift we have to reach out, open our hands and hearts to receive it.
May the grace and peace of the Holy Spirit be with you this Sunday and always.
Msgr. Francis J. McAree, S.T.D.
