10-24-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

(St. Anthony Mary Claret)
Continuing on the theme of sin and death,
righteousness and eternal life,
St. Paul said, “For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Rom 6:19-23

Wages are payments for employment.
When we employ our efforts towards sin,
our salary is death.

Gift, on the other hand, is freely given,
and sometimes not even deserved (Grace).
And the Gift that God gives us is – life.
Life, not just for the now, but life eternal – forever!

When we believe in Jesus, beloved, our whole life changes
such that sin is no longer desirable to us.
It’s actually repulsive.
And LIFE, and Love, and Kindness
truly become the desires of our hearts.

Come, beloved,
believe and Live!
