WYD #6: "The Light Shines in the Darkness & the Darkness Has Not Overcome It" (Jn. 1); WYD Protest Photo

You, too, must choose a side.  For God or against Him.

Serviam or non serviam.  "I will serve" or "I will not serve."

Only these two there are.

Let us choose Christ the Light!

I'm so proud of these young Catholics @ WYD who responded to hate with prayer for those against them.

Which side are you on?

As the small group of protestors came upon a group of unsuspecting WYD pilgrims, the World Youth Day pilgrims started to chant, "Benedicto!  Benedicto!  Benedicto!"

Love is stronger than death.

In this corner.  On the left are the horns of the serpent.  On the right is the Cross of Christ.

This is the struggle of the "Woman" of Genesis (Ch. 3), John's Gospel (Chs. 2 & 19), & Revelation (Ch. 12) vs. the serpent, whose head will be crushed by the "Woman."

Which side are you on?

Remember, even indifference is a choice.  It is a choice against God.

And lukewarmness is a choice against God.

In the Book of Revelation, Jesus the Alpha and the Omega said, "So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth" (Rev. 3:16).


Just like John...three...sixteen.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life" (Jn. 3:16).

Eternal life.

Which side are you on?

Choose life.

"...I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse.  Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God..." (Deut. 30).

Let us serve God.

Let us love Him.

And let us tell the world of His love.

Which side are you on?

HW: Conversion.

Class dismissed.
