We believe that Jesus is the only Son of God and also our Lord, because He is God. Not only is Jesus the messenger of the Father, He is also the Word of God. He came to show us truth and to give us the grace to live out the truth. Every year, Catholics celebrate three important events: Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost. They remind us of three great mysteries – the incarnation of Christ at Christmas, the salvation of mankind at Easter, and the birth of the Church at Pentecost. We can analyze each mystery by answering some basic questions, for example Christmas: God became man (what?) in order to save us (why?) by being born of the Virgin Mary through the Holy Spirit (how?) as true God and true man (who?) in Bethlehem (where?). There are also links between mysteries: Mary wrapped Christ in linens at His birth and at His death and laid Him in the wooden manger and brought Him to the wooden Cross. Whereas all men were born to live, Jesus was born to die for our sake.
