Proclaiming the Good News

In both his words and his actions Jesus proclaimed the good news of salvation, that God is a loving, compassionate and merciful God, who extends an invitation to all – Jews and gentiles, saints and sinners, -- to enter his Kingdom. The Church today is certainly known, and even admired, for its loving, compassionate and merciful good works. Unfortunately, whether justifiably or not, its words are not similarly perceived, perceived by many as judgemental and condemnatory. Yes, the Church must always proclaim the divine truth of what is right and wrong, but do so in love, and instilled with, and accompanied by, the assurance of God’s mercy, forgiveness and love for all.
