A God who cares

Salvation history is a narration of the myriad ways God manifested His sublime paternal care for the people He created to the point of sending His only Son to redeem man from sin and show the true way to the Home where Jesus has prepared a room for each one of us—in Heaven (Jn. 14:2).  The Father’s care in Jesus is never-ending, as we experience each time we celebrate the Eucharist and ‘see and taste’ the living Body and Blood of our Savior that is our nourishment-guarantee to Eternal Life (cf. Jn. 6:53-54).  Let us profusely thank this God who cares for the gift of the Living Bread of His Son on the feast of Corpus Christi’. If we could only FEEL the heart of Jesus throbbing with LOVE to give / giving His All to us, always and FOREVER.  This love in us is also the presence of the Blessed Trinity that makes our lives fruitful.

It is now our turn to care.  As God cares, so do we, as our own thanks to this All-giving Father.  We have to thank God for His care over us.  He has placed many people in our way to guide us, to care for us, namely our parents, our friends, acquaintances, mentors, and models.  As it is “more fulfilling to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35), we too should care for those who come in our way.  God’s providence has seen it so that we could also take care of them.  Remember Jesus says: “The measure you extend to others is the very same measure that shall come back to you overflowing” (Lk. 6:36).  Others need us.  Out of gratitude to God from whom all good things come, we too should extend our goodness and sincere care to them.
