“Hesed” All the Way Through

Cycle BLentWeek 4

by Bishop Robert BarronMarch 11, 2018


The Divine Love is the great theme of the Bible, but one of the mistakes we can make is to project onto God our way of being. Gods love is unconditional, not fickle and vacillating. His love is hesed, which means tender mercy. This love is visible, par excellence, in the Incarnation.
