Second Reading for the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus Year C

Romans 5:5b-11

Summary: God's love is shown through Christ's sacrifice for us sinners. Justified by his blood, we are saved from wrath and reconciled to God.

Christ's Sacrifice for Us

Brothers and sisters:

The love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

For Christ, while we were still helpless, died at the appointed time for the ungodly.

Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die.

But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

How much more then, since we are now justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath.

Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life.

Not only that, but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
