True God

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

The first reading from the book of Wisdom reminds us that there is only one God, the God of Jesus Christ, true God and true man, the One and Triune God, who becomes one of us by the Incarnation and comes to our aid, as St. Paul explains in the second reading, by the action of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity. God desires that all be saved, that is, that every single man and woman who ever was, is or will be, share in his love and life during this life and for all eternity.

We ought not to be afraid to proclaim this fact lovingly, respectfully and boldly, especially in our attempts to engage in dialogue with other religions because, as Pope Francis has repeatedly explained, authentic dialogue must be a quest for truth. The Lord Jesus himself gave the Church a missionary mandate for example at the conclusion of the Gospel according to St. Matthew. Therefore, Christians have a duty to engage the world without renouncing their faith or identity.
