God Liberates Us

Dear friends: One of God’s attributes is to liberate people, freeing them from all the fetters that bind them and bonds that hold them away from the divine. The Book of Genesis tells us that God created everything that was good and placed creation at the service of man. He gave freedom to man so that he could make use of all created things and serve Him, the Lord and Creator. He manifested His love to us by offering us a total liberation, which we need to accept with gratitude and a simple heart. He wanted us to manifest this love towards others. He gave us His Son in Jesus, as His gift to us, and who in turn taught us that only through love can we manifest our presence towards others. He came to save us all. He showed His special care towards the poor and the sick and healed them. In today’s Gospel, Jesus heals a man who was deaf and was suffering from speech impediment. Jesus touched him and healed him after which he could hear clearly and speak the good news of the Kingdom to all.
