"What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him? Who will bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who acquits us. Who will condemn? It is Christ Jesus who died, rather, was raised, who also is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us.
What will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or
distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the
sword? As it is written:
'For your sake we are being slain all the day; we are looked upon as sheep to be slaughtered.'
No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved
us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor
principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers,nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose."
"Anyone who loves God in the depths of his heart has already been loved
by God. In fact, the measure of a man’s love for God depends upon how
deeply aware he is of God’s love for him."
Diadochus of Photice
"At the end of the parable of the lost sheep Jesus recalled that God's
love excludes no one: 'So it is not the will of your Father who is in
heaven that one of these little ones should perish.' He affirms that he
came 'to give his life as a ransom for many'; this last term is not
restrictive, but contrasts the whole of humanity with the unique person
of the redeemer who hands himself over to save us. The Church, following
the apostles, teaches that Christ died for all men without exception: 'There is not, never has been, and never will be a single human being
for whom Christ did not suffer.'"
