(St. Maria Goretti, Martyr)
The LORD spoke with Jacob saying, “In you and your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing. Know that I am with you; I will protect you wherever you go, and bring you back to this land. I will never leave you until I have done what I promised you.” Gn 28:10-22a
Jacob, later named Israel by God, did become the father of many nations. Nations that were blessed, but later fell away from the LORD and became lost, even though the LORD never stopped loving them. It is the same love that God has for all of us, beloved, ALL nations. If we ever get to feeling lost, come back to God. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to never leave us! When we open our hearts to the Spirit of God, we will realize that He really has, never left us.
