Christmas Dec 23

Monday, December 23rd. The Fourth Week of Advent where we are celebrating LOVE.

LOVE IS A RELATIONSHIP

"If God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."  1 JOHN 4:11 RSV

The word love, as it is used in the biblical texts, has two obvious qualities. St. John, the master teacher on love . . ., taught that love has its own origins in God (“we love; because he first loved us”— 1 John 4:19) and that it is a relationship with persons (“if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another”—1 John 4:11). Love is not a word that describes my feelings. It is not a technique by which I fulfill my needs. It is not an ideal, abstract and pure, on which I meditate or discourse. It is acting in correspondence with or in response to God in relation to persons.
