In this article, Fausto Gomez OP reflects on his personal responsibility to God as a Christian. Faith in God helps people to be happy and to carry the cross of life. Love should be an essential part of our belief system, and we must love all people, even our enemies, with compassion. A world without God is a world without hope. The ultimate end of human life is a blessed life in God, and our responsibility on earth is to give glory to God through Jesus Christ.
The reflection by Fausto Gomez, OP, explores his identity as a creature, human, Christian, and God’s adopted son. He emphasizes his responsibility to care for God’s creation and acknowledges the purpose of life as finding happiness through love. Fr Gomez also highlights the Christian view of the human person, where greatness comes from openness to God and others, and destruction comes from selfishness.
THERE’S NONE LIKE HIM. Jesus is truly one of a kind. He is the only man, the only founder of a religion, who could claim that people had been talking about his coming centuries before he was born.
The development of Christian spirituality is grounded on the sources of Revelation, that is, Sacred Scriptures and Christian Tradition. Christian spirituality has developed exuberantly through the centuries from the teachings of the Sacred Scriptures, through the Fathers of the Church, theologians, mystics, and saints, and the evolving magisterium of the Church.
