Compartiendo el mensaje evangélico con los adolescentes

Authored by Bob Rice in Issue #31.4 of The Sower

La asombrosa respuesta está al corazón del mensaje evangélico y del discurso misionero que invitamos a los adolescentes a oír y aceptar en sus corazones.

‘El Verbo se encarnó para salvarnos reconciliándonos con Dios.’ i Jesús nació para morir, para sacrificarse para que nosotros fuéramos reconciliados con Dios. Dios nos salvó ‘enviando a su propio Hijo, en una carne semejante a la del pecado, y como víctima por el pecado. Así Él condenó el pecado en la carne’. ii

The Church Is Holy: Perspective and Hope from St. Augustine
By Fr. Pieter van Rooyen
Free At a time when we know all too well the sins of our leaders, the “mark” of holiness raises questions. But insights from Saint Augustine can give perspective and hope—because even while the Church is “always in need of purification” (CCC 827), she is united with Christ and she is “sanctified by him; [and] through him and with him she becomes...
