They are reborn — not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
I don't truly understand this mystery, but I accept it as true and real. Thank you for giving us a path to life with you. It is so wonderful to be your child, even though I was once far from you. Remind me of this reality in the darkest moments of my life.
