01-02-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 2, 2017
(Saints Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzen, Bishops and Doctors of the Church)
St. John wrote, “Let what you heard from the beginning remain in you.  If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, then you will remain in the Son and in the Father.  And this is the promise that he made us: eternal life.”  1_Jn_2:22-28

In one way or another, every one of us struggles with something in this life.  Maybe it is joblessness.  Maybe it is loneliness.  Maybe it’s abuse or persecution, or oppression, or slavery – whether that’s at home or at work or in the very place we thought was safe and secure.  But whatever it is that we’re struggling with, when we “remain” in God, He will see us through it.  And even if, “through it” means an end to this life, He guarantees that the eternal life we are rewarded with will be unlike any of the struggles we have to endure here and now.  This is what John was trying to get the new converts to Christianity to understand.  And it all has to do with our Love for God and for one another.
