Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
1 John 5:5-13
The phrase eternal life rolls of my tongue easily at mass, but less easily when a friend’s only son dies tragically. How does the mystery of eternal life explain seemingly senseless suffering and the cessation of a young, vibrant life? What, in fact gives life meaning? There is still much mystery to comprehend, about this life that comes from eternity, is visible beifly on this stage called earth, and then passes on into forever and ever. Holy Spirit, teach me about eternal life!
By this the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his Only Begotten Son into the world, so that we might have life through him. (1 John 4)
