Jesus’ Divinity

School Mass:
Dear students of St. John Vianney,
Week after week, and every Sunday, we are hearing the Holy Gospels read at Mass. The Gospel tells the story of the great thing that has happened to our world: that God the Son has come down from heaven, to be born like us, live our life with us, and then save us from our sins. How has he saved us from our sins? By dying on the cross and rising from the dead.
.
Jesus Christ is true God and true Man. He was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit, and that shows that he is God. He had a real Mother like us, and that shows that he is Man.

.

The Holy Gospels show us so much of the Divine Power of Christ. Jesus knew what people were thinking because God knows everything. And the miracles that he did are very, very many.
.
He caused Peter to catch thousands of fish, when before he caught nothing. Jesus walked on top of the water, no problem.
He turned water into wine, he healed a paralyzed man, made a blind man see, and a deaf person to hear; and he made a huge thunderstorm to stop and be calm.
.
Remember he fed 5 thousand people once with a few fish and loaves, and did the same for 4 thousand others. He cured 10 lepers and when Malchus’ ear was chopped off, he re-attached it – perfectly healed.
.
The greatest miracles of Christ were the raising of people back from the dead. He raised a woman’s son from the dead, Lazarus from the dead, and a little girl back from the dead. Greater still, he himself rose from the dead in a glorified body, never to die again.
All these miracles show us that Jesus Christ is really God, that he is the Son of God who came down from heaven.
.
And they show us that we can trust him completely; and that when he promises us that he can forgive our sins, and that he wants to bring us to heaven one day – we can totally trust him.
This means we have to give our life to Jesus, speak to him often, ask his help, trust him; and above all, do what is right, live a holy life. St. Paul says: ‘Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the first.’
.
Jesus is the Son of God who came down from heaven to save us, in this we can trust and be certain. No one else who has ever walked this earth has done the thousands of stupendous miracles like Jesus Christ. No one.
So let us put all our faith in him, and even though we have done some sins, it is never too late to turn back, to be forgiven, and once again be his dear disciple.
