Faith: Over the Counter

20 Nov 2011: Pontiff explains Faith in Benin

What is the “Good News?” That’s like asking Apple “What’s a Computer?”

 

It’s a question every Catholic should have on the tips of his fingers. Do you? If stopped on the street today, what would you answer to that question?

 

NOT

What it’s not—just some message out of the thousand-and-one sound-bites that will hit you today in your life’s casual stroll through Twitter, e-mail, billboards, conversations and the over-the-counter chat while buying toothpaste.

 

IS

What it is—It’s about me and God. Life has absolutely no meaning without an eternal reward; God supplies that meaning, he gives that reward. This makes me open to Jesus, because Jesus forgives me and shows me the way to heaven.

 

The “Good News” is thus good for three reasons: 1. forgiveness of sin, which causes 2. interior peace, and 3. helps us to live rightly on our way to heaven.

 

So, the next time you get questioned about your faith, share the truth with them: Your life has eternal meaning.

 

That’s what B-XVI said last Sunday. But don’t take my word for it ... here’s the link.
