10-03-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 3, 2017
Thus says the LORD of hosts: There shall yet come peoples, the inhabitants of many cities; and the inhabitants of one city shall approach those of another, and say, “Come! let us go to implore the favor of the LORD”; and, “I too will go to seek the LORD.”   Zec_8:20-23

A common desire for the Love of the Lord.
Who is this God who loves us, even when we’ve sinned so horribly against Him and against our brothers and sisters?  He IS the Lord!  He IS our God.  And all the more reason why we should love one another as much!

Here in Hawaii people often greet one another with the word Aloha.  I always assumed it just meant our typical American, vanilla, hello.  But if you looked it up you’d come to find the definition:  Aloha (pronounced [əˈlo.hə]) is the Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy, that is commonly used as a simple greeting (Wikipedia).  And now I think of that Love of God every time I hear Aloha.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we greeted one another with “LOVE.”  It’s so much sweeter than just hello!
