His Word Today: Pass it on

Good morning everyone,

When we were children, our parents and our grandparents taught us many things about life, including introducing us to the person of Jesus Christ.  As we have grown, some of us have had the joy of experiencing the birth of our own children, and all of us have reached a particular moment in our lives when we realized that we in turn needed to begin teaching others about Jesus.

Luckily for us, we have the sacred scriptures to remind us about who God is, who Jesus is and who the Holy Spirit is ... and we have the wisdom that has been passed on to us by the living witness of the prophets and others who have come before us.  Concerning the salvation of our souls (1 Peter 1:10), the prophets remind us that this is the special gift that Jesus promises to all of us.

Now it's up to us, who have heard the good news to share this joy with those we meet.  It's up to us to teach our children and to create the circumstances that will help them to establish a loving relationship with our God.  In this way we who have learned from our ancestors will pass on this good news to generations that will follow us.

Have a great day.
