DO YOU WANT TO GROW IN LOVE? HERE’S THE SECRET!
Do you want to grow in love? Pope Francis gave this important tip last April 24, 2016 during his homily at the Jubilee Mass for Teens, stating:
“love is a free gift which calls for an open heart; love is a responsibility, but a noble responsibility which is life-long; it is a daily task for those who can achieve great dreams! Woe to your people who do not know how to dream, who do not dare to dream! If a person of your age is not able to dream, if they have already gone into retirement… this is not good. LOVE IS NURTURED BY TRUST, RESPECT AND FORGIVENESS. LOVE DOES NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE WE TALK ABOUT IT, BUT WHEN WE LIVE IT: IT IS NOT A SWEET POEM TO STUDY AND MEMORIZE, BUT IS A LIFE CHOICE TO PUT INTO PRACTICE! HOW CAN WE GROW IN LOVE? THE SECRET, ONCE AGAIN, IS THE LORD: JESUS GIVES US HIMSELF IN THE MASS, HE OFFERS US FORGIVES AND PEACE IN CONFESSION. THERE WE LEARN TO RECEIVE HIS LOVE, TO MAKE IT OURS AND TO GIVE IT TO THE WORLD.”
Hence, let us receive Jesus more frequently in the sacraments of the Holy Eucharist and Confession…of God’s Mercy!…so as to grow more in love with Him and as a consequence for others as well.
Have a great week ahead and God bless! Fr. Rolly Arjonillo
