Think a moment about the Virgin Mary’s threefold response to the Archangel Gabriel: Let it be to me according to Your will. My soul magnifies the Lord. My spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

The unequivocal truth of God is that God is Love. He loves all people unconditionally. God loves Christians AND Muslims. He loves believers AND atheists. God loves those who have grown up in this country AND He loves immigrants, whether legal or illegal. God loves even white supremacists, even though their actions are utterly against His ways. He longs for such lost, dark souls to find the light and turn away from the hell they are living in.
