Unformatted text preview: ill be your God.” God said to David, “Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before Me; your throne shall stand firm forever.” Jesus said to the Apostles, “This cup is the new covenant in My Blood, which will be shed for you.” God created us by giving us an immortal soul. Being a “person” who can know and love God gives man and woman a special worth or “dignity.” All persons have equal dignity and dignity cannot be taken away. However, persons differ in talents and abilities but not in dignity. Dignity is not determined by how productive a person is in society. For example, a mentally handicapped person or a terminally ill person has the same dignity as a healthy person. Animals and plants have value and are important to us but they do not have dignity. (CCC 356-358) Dignity Matthew 19:13-15 Psalm 139 Jeremiah 1:4-10 Luke 24:33-49 August 6th, 2005 Transfiguration of our Lord “Let the children come to Me.” “Lord, You know me; … You understand my thoughts from afar.” “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…” Due to Adam’s sin, God sent us a Redeemer, His only Son. This was an undeserved gift of His mercy and love. He created us out of love and He then redeemed us out of love. The fact that God did become one of us is a great honor to us as His creatures.

As God he is a Divine Person, the second Person of the Blessed Trinity. (CCC 464, 461, 463, 443-445) Mark 1:1 Luke 2:11 1 John 4:9 John 1:1-17 “The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” “For today in the city of David, a Savior has been born for you who is Messiah” “God sent His Son into the world.” “And the Word became flesh.” 10. Mary’s “yes” to God to be the Mother of Jesus made our salvation possible. Since Mary is the Mother of Jesus and Jesus is God, we rightly call Mary the Mother of God. (CCC 494-495, 497, 509, 485, 723) Luke 1:26-38 Luke 1:39-45 “Hail, full of grace…Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be called Son of the Most High…and of His Kingdom there will be no end.” The Visitation: “And how does this happen to me, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?” Elizabeth calls Mary the Mother of God because the angel Gabriel had told her of this Good News. 11. Jesus came to bring His Kingdom of truth and love, of justice and peace, of holiness and grace. “The Church is the seed and beginning of this Kingdom.” “Everyone is called to enter the Kingdom” (CCC 567, 543). The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God Mark 1:14-15 Mark 4:10-20 Luke 4:18 Matthew 21:28-32 “Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming…the Kingdom of God is at hand.
