01-05-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 5, 2019
(St. John Neumann, Bishop)
Beloved: This is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another, . . .  The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.  If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him?  Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.  1_Jn_3:11-21

John, the evangelist, loves to speak about love, just as Jesus did.  You see, beloved, when it really gets down to it – love is all there is (just as the Beatles sang it).  And it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to learn that.  Things break down, money disappears, food rots and even relationships fall apart.  But love is eternal.  It lifts us up.  It carries us through.  And it keeps us going.  But it’s not the love that we expect others to give to us, it’s the love that we give to others, without expecting repayment.  This ‘giving’ love should be our driving force in life.  And with it, we will have that life forever, with Jesus, His Father and the Holy Spirit!
