John 3:16 Valentine This sums up everything. A priest told us during a retreat made us aware that no human in his right mind would have his son executed mangled and brutally whipped to save a damned sinner like me . Thank you to the priest whose name i cannot remember.
There is one way, and only one, Out of our gloom, and sin, and care, To that far land where shines no sun Because the face of God is there. There is one truth, the truth of God, That Christ came down from Heav’n to show, One life that His redeeming blood Has won for all His saints below. O way divine, through gloom and strife, Bring us Thy Father’s face to see; O heav’nly truth, O precious life, At last, at last, we rest in Thee.
