Beloved, since God loved us so much,
we also ought to love one another.

1 John 4:11

“So if I, your Lord and Teacher,
have washed your feet,
you also ought to wash
one another’s feet.

John 13:14

“It is by the path of love,
which is charity,
that God draws near to man
and man to God.
But where charity is not found,
God cannot dwell.
If, then, we possess charity,
we posses God,
for ‘God is Charity

(1 John 4:8).”

St Albert the Great OP (1200-1280)
Doctor of the Church

At the end of your life,
you will be judged by your love
.”

St John of the Cross (1542-1591)
Doctor of the Church

The Gospel showed me
that the first commandment is to love God
with all one’s heart
and that, we should enfold everything in love;
everyone knows,
that the first effect of love is imitation
.”

Bl Charles of Jesus de Foucauld (1858-1916)

Before the cave at Bethelehm then,
we should learn two great lessons.
We should learn to love Jesus intensely,
as our highest and only good
and we should learn to love,
in an effective and practical way,
those who are poverty-stricken
or suffering, in whom we should be able
to see Jesus Christ Himself.

Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

9 In this, the love of God
was made manifest among us,
that God sent his only Son
into the world, so that we
might live through him.

10 In this is love, not that we loved God
but that he loved us and sent his Son
to be the expiation for our sins.

Today’s First Reading : 1 John 4:7-101 john 4 9-10 in this the love of god was manifest - 8 jan 2019

By his divine power, he has lavished on us,
all the things we need for life
and for true devotion,
through the knowledge of him,
who has called us,
by his own glory and goodness.
Through these, the greatest and priceless promises
have been lavished on us, that through them,
you should share the divine nature
and escape the corruption in a world
that is sunk in vice.

2 Peter 1:3-42 peter 1 3-4 by his divine power he has lavished on us - 8 jan 2019
