MARY AND CHILDSaint Irenaeus WritingsThe heart and the temple of the Holy Spirit PurityIMAGES L.A. CATHEDRAL ANGELSGOSPEL OF ST. JOHN:the intention of the Evangelist in composing the Gospel is expressed in the words which we have already quoted: But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (xx, 31). He wished also by his work to confirm the faith of the disciples in the Messianic character and the Divinity of Christ. To attain his object, he selected principally those discourses and colloquies of Jesus in which the self-revelation of the Redeemer laid clearest emphasis on the Divine Majesty of His Being. In this manner John wished to secure the faithful against the temptations of the false learning by means of which the heretics might prejudice the purity of their faith.Towards the narrative of the earlier Evangelists Johns attitude was that of one who sought to fill out the story of the words and works of the Saviour, while endeavouring to secure certain incidents from misinterpretation. His Gospel thus forms a glorious conclusion of the joyous message of the Eternal Word. For all time it remains for the Church the most sublime testimony of her faith in the Son of God, the radiant lamp of truth for her doctrine, the never-ceasing source of loving zeal in her devotion to her Master, Who loves her even to the end.CHAPLET OF OUR LORD PRAYERDAVID FORSTER OXFORDSHIRE ENGLANDwww.liturgialatna.org
