THE SERVANT GENERAL
THE VICTORY OF GOD
Today’s reading: Psalm 98:1-4
In our work of evangelization and mission, we engage in spiritual
warfare. To be able to experience the victory already won
by our Lord, we must not only be warriors but holy warriors.
Of course the ultimate holy warrior is our Lord, and “His
right hand and holy arm have won the victory.” (v.1b).
this Year of Mercy, we also have seen that the ultimate act
of mercy is to win souls for the Kingdom, and that is done
through the work of evangelization. Jesus went to the cross
for us, and the icon of mercy is Christ crucified. In his
heart still is the desire for all to be saved. “He has
remembered his mercy and faithfulness toward the house of
God wants no one to be lost, the work of evangelization needs
to be rapid, massive and worldwide. God’s holy warriors
must strive to reach all, and allow them to experience the
salvation of God. “The Lord has made his victory known,
has revealed his triumph in the sight of the nations”
(v.2). The result? “All the ends of the earth have seen
the victory of our God.” (v.3b).
