“But at the end of time You sent Your Son – our Lord Jesus Christ – and You required of Yourself the sacrifice that Abraham was not made to offer. You gave Your only begotten Son for the life of the whole world, so that Your people and all the peoples of the earth might find their salvation in Him” (Hymn of Praise to the Most Holy Trinity).
In the Message to Mother Eugenia Ravasio, God the Father expresses it in these words:
“When I realized that neither the patriarchs nor the prophets had been able to make Me known and loved by men, I decided to come Myself”.
Our Father’s love goes to the extreme. To save His children, He does not stop even in the face of death, but, in the person of His Son, He accepts death for our sake. In what follows in the Father’s Message, we can see the depth of His love:
“But how could I come among them? There was no other way than to come Myself, in the second Person of My divinity. Would men know Me? Would they listen to Me? Nothing in the future was hidden from Me; I Myself answered these two questions: ‘They will ignore My presence, even though they will be near Me. In My Son they will treat Me cruelly, notwithstanding all the good He will do for them. In My Son they will speak ill of Me, they will crucify Me to bring about My death.’ Shall I stop because of this? No, My love for My children, men, is too great. I did not stop there. Understand well that I loved you, as it were, more than My beloved Son, or rather, more than Myself”.
What else is there to say, but to worship and thank God infinitely!
