Text Box: SUNDAY SCRIPTURE:       


       God's love for us is self-giving and unconditional, surpassing human love. Jesus uses words that are analogous to human relationships to describe God's relationship to us: he calls him "Father" and us "sons and daughters." When Jesus uses such words and images, it is important to remember that God’s love surpasses all love found in human relationships. God loves us unconditionally, with total giving of self, and desires nothing more than for us to be in love with him and to love others as a sign of that love. The first reading from Zephaniah reminds the Israelites not to be discouraged, for the Lord will rejoice over them and renew them in his love. The second reading reminds us to rejoice in the Lord always. In the Gospel, John the Baptist prepares the way for Jesus as he teaches that one mightier than him – who will baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire – is coming.
