Mt 22:34-40 “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
That is OUR CALL. OUR only CALL. OUR complete CALL...To Love. To Love does NOT mean accepting everything someone does. To Love does mean to care, to sacrifice, and to pray. To Love also means to teach, to correct and to lead. To Love means to lead to GOD, to share our Love for GOD and to be unwavering in our Obedience to GOD. OUR CALL is to stay focused on Heaven- for ourselves and for anyone GOD places in our path. PRAYER SACRIFICE OBEDIENCE LOVE GOD with everything, and in everything. LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR as HE does.
Today Lord, please help me to see each person, especially those who challenge me, as YOU see them- as YOUR son or daughter; as someone I LOVE.
St. Rose of Lima, pray for us.
