"Love God with your whole heart, your whole soul, and your whole mind," said Jesus. And, later Jesus told the disciples that He would lay down His life for their sins.
So we have a hint that Love involves sacrifice and suffering and self-giving. That ongoing, eternal sacrice that happens around the clock and around the world is the Sacrifice of the Mass thrioughout the world.
We experience real Love when we receive the Holy Communion as our "Daily Bread."
We ask, in the Our Father that God give us our daily bread and He does give us that Bread in the Holy Sacrifice of the Eucharist. He feeds us from His own flesh and blood. Just as a Mother feeds her baby from her own breast we are fed by God. Just as the father gives his life's work to put the bread on the table, Jesus gives us His Life to put bread on our table.
The father and mother are seen imitating God's Love through their sacrice of their own body and works so their children may flourish.
You who have experinced marital relations and growing a family know Spiritual Love is never self-centered, but centered in giving.
But, you ask, what about those of us who aren't married? What is Love like in vocations other than marriage.
Ask any priest and he'll tell you that his is a total life giving service. And our sisters who enter religious community also have a total life giving service. Ask anyone involved in one of the various parish ministries the same question and they will admit to giving and more giving. What's in it for those who love their neighbor as they love themselve? You can believe they will admit that what goes around, comes aroung. And, isn't that what "Catholic365" tells us?
Look again at the meaning of Catholic 365. Rephrase it as all over the world, all the time.
A thought pops into mind: "LOVE IS CATHOLIC 365."
