Redemption is Pure Gift

Jesus’ Redemption is gift – a pure, unmerited, gratuitous gift; and simultaneously, reveals the truth about every human person: one prized, precious, and cherished; one chosen by the Lord, and set free from the bondage of sin and death by Love – to be loved and to love. The challenge for the believer is to live in the moment of redemption – fully alive, fully human — trusting confidently in this most wondrous gift. ~Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, SV; IPS 2013 Commencement Address
