True love is experienced at a personal level. We understand the love we receive and the love we give, to our spouses, our children, our families and even our friends.
For many Catholics, the love of God is also personal as we strive to answer his unique call to each of us. Answering God’s call challenges us to extend love outward as far as we possibly can; beyond the people and cause we know.
Many people make regular and significant sacrifices for those they love, such as deferring “things” to save for a child’s education or leaving a career to care for an aging parent. Others spread love outward through mission trips and community service.
Through all of these acts, and many more, Catholics are answering God’s commandment to “Love one another.”
As we continue our focus on Loving without Limits, think about what you bring to your parish and to the world around you. What are you doing to impact your faith community?
Think about who you love and why. How can you extend this love to others in your life?
Think about your place in the world and how you can make a difference…through love.
