Chapter 7. The Good News: God Has Sent His Son • 87

When the Son of God became man he became a model of holiness

for us. “This is my commandment: love one another as I love you”

(Jn 15:12).

God became man that we may partake in the divine nature. “He has

bestowed on us the precious and very great promises, so that through

them you may come to share in the divine nature” (2 Pt 1:4)


Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God,

have mercy on me, a sinner.

I can never cease to speak of Christ for he is our truth and

our light.

—Pope Paul VI
