The Pope’s message from the Vatican yesterday really struck a chord with me. With all the theories and stories on how the world began or how humans came into existence, it is wonderful to be reminded of exactly how and why we were all created.
Contrary to the scientific notion that all of us and everything around us came to be by accident and for no reason whatsoever, the Blessed Father’s message said that, “The Scripture tells us that the origin of the world, our origin is not irrational or out of necessity, but reason and love and freedom.” These words really touched my heart. It made me appreciate the profoundness of my existence–why I am here.
God in His greatness created me out of love and with reason. It is the very essence of love to want to have others outside of oneself to love. If God did not create people, like you and me, His love would have no one to extend towards. And it is this very same love that caused God to send His only son to die on the cross to save you and me from our sins.
