Gospel

There is a Benevolence in the fabric of all that exists.

Psalm 145:9

The LORD is good to all, compassionate toward all your works.

+++

Who is the most compassionate person you know?

Whoever that is…God must be a trillion times more compassionate.

Actually…that’s an understatement since God is eternally loving, merciful, forgiving and compassionate.

Since God is Love (1 John 4:8)…we know that this Love is what is giving everything life.

Love is in, through, and all around all that is.

As St. Paul put it: In God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be struggles.

Sometimes we suffer because people have free will and can choose to do things that are hurtful.

Nature also has a freedom that can cause damage. (I’m thinking this is largely amplified by the amount of damage humans are doing to nature but that subject is for another time.)

But throughout all of it…there is an underlying Love holding all and including all.

Bodily death is not the end…but merely a transformation to new life.

Our souls go on safe and sound.

So trust…and live in that awareness.
