Gospel: Jn 3:31-36
“He who comes from above is above all...”
All earthly existence has to be directed by God. It is our obligation to exercise a critical role in our institutions, and communities to correspond with Christian morality. We would normally obey the law, but when it is not moral anymore, we act according to our conscience.
We therefore aspire for consistency and unity in our beliefs and values. Our faith provides us with the guidance and firmness as we integrate these Christian beliefs into our daily lives. When given a choice, how do we decide? What will we be our criteria for making a decision? Without thinking, we know where we stand, always on the right.
When called for, we make heroic decisions, even on little things. We stand for what we believe in, on where our convictions lie, based on Divine law.
