Spiritual Quote of the Day (First Letter of St. John, On How God’s Love Was Revealed to Us)

“God’s love was revealed among us in this way:
God sent his only Son into the world
so that we might live through him.
In this is love,
not that we loved God but that he loved us
and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.” —1 John 4: 9-10 (New Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition)

The image accompanying this post, “Madonna and Child,” was contained in a landscape by Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini (1480/1485).
