Nicodemus Had a Worthwhile Visit

John 3:7-15


Jesus Christ explained to Nicodemus

That he needed faith to understand what

He was being told.  He was not too old.

He was a young dog.  He could learn new tricks.


Jesus taught him salvation history.

Heaven is the ultimate victory.

When Jesus would later be on the cross,

Look on Him with faith and don’t get a loss.


Let us be grateful for Vatican II.

We cannot get free from sin on our own.

“All have need of Christ, who is the model,

… liberator, savior, …giver of life.”


Believe in Jesus; get eternal life.

Here on earth, I have a wonderful wife.


Patrick McCaskey
