Why does the Church teach that Jesus is God?

Isaiah prophesied, “A child is born to us, a son is given to us (Is. 9:5).  Christians have long seen in these words a prophesy of Jesus birth.

The reality that God himself became a man for our salvation – what is called the Incarnation (literally, “becoming flesh”) is the heart of Christian faith.  Denial of this truth is heretic.

Jesus Himself declared “The Father [that is God] and I are one (Jn 10:30).  In fact, virtually every attribute of the Father in heaven – the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who revealed Himself in the Old Testament – was claimed by Jesus for Himself.  He spoke authoritatively as God (rather than merely for God).  He accepted worship.  He forgave sins.  He said He was equal with the Father and He had existed eternally.

In the New Testament authors verified His claim “In the beginning,” the Gospel according to John announced, “was the Word/… the Word was God/…All things came to be through Him,/ and without Him nothing came to be./  And the Word became flesh.” (Jn 1:1, 23, 14).

St. Paul wrote, “dwells the whole fullness of the deity body” (Col 2:9)

Healing Mass

11th of February, in observance of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, we participated in a Healing Mass and Anointing of the sick,” celebrated by Msgr. Dennis Odiver at 6:30am and 12:15nn.

Jesus Christ himself had performed many miracles involving the sick and he also took this opportunity to forgive the sins of the ailing person. Our state of being in sin affects the well-being of the body and visiting a physical doctor is not enough to make us whole. We need God’s forgiveness in the sacrament of Reconciliation to make us complete again. Before Christ ascended into heaven he had delegated this power to his disciples. Paul, is one among them.
