The Good News

The Lord has sent me to preach the Good News to the poor and the afflicted [Luke 4:18].

The Good News starts with repentance, followed by baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and the following of Christ based on self denial and the carrying of our daily cross.

The four gospels are the personal teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ, He came to deliver us from the bondage of sin. He came to open the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven.

 A summary of the Good News is contained in the Sermon of the Mount, the eight beatitudes  [Matthew 5:1-12]

1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain, and when he was set down, his disciples came unto him.
 2 And opening his mouth, he taught them, saying:
 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 4 Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.
 5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
 6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.
 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
 8 Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
 9 Blesses are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.
 10 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of
heaven.
 11 Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake:
 12 Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.

The Power of Jesus to forgive sins

[Mark 2:3-12 - Luke 5:18-26]

Mark 2:3 And they came to him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was carried by four.

 4 And when they could not offer him unto him for the multitude, they uncovered the roof where he was; and opening it, they let down the bed wherein the man sick of the palsy lay.

 5 And when Jesus had seen their faith, he saith to the sick of the palsy: Son, thy sins are forgiven thee.

 6 And there were some of the scribes sitting there, and thinking in their hearts:

 7 Why doth this man speak thus? he blasphemeth. Who can forgive sins, but God only?

 8 Which Jesus presently knowing in his spirit, that they so thought within themselves, saith to them: Why think you these things in your hearts?

 9 Which is easier, to say to the sick of the palsy: Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say: Arise, take up thy bed, and walk?

10 But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

11 I say to thee: Arise, take up thy bed, and go into thy house.

 12 And immediately he arose; and taking up his bed, went his way in the sight of all; so that all wondered and glorified God, saying: We never saw the like.

Jesus forgave the sinful woman, he said to her: Thy sins are forgiven thee. [Luke 7:48]

Father forgive them, for they know not what they do [Luke 23:34]

St. John in his second letter: I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake. [1 John 2:12]

It is because of the death of Jesus that our sins are forgiven, He is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. [John 1:36]

[Apocalypse 7:13-14]

St. John had a vision of the Glory of God to come, surrounded by all those who will be saved;
13 And one of the ancients answered, and said to me: These that are clothed in white robes, who are they? and whence came they?

14 And I said to him: My Lord, thou knowest. And he said to me: These are they who are come out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
