A Personal Journey to Love

Jun 06, 2022

When Christ leads us on a journey, we will be amazed at what He can transform in us. I want to share part of my personal journey today. My husband died in 2001 at the age of 60 about 20 years after I had given my life to Christ. I’ve told in other posts how […]

Love

Jan 24, 2022

It was Jesus who showed us how to treat other people, neighbors and strangers. It was Jesus who offered healing to the people He met. It was Jesus who confronted those in power who were serving only themselves. It was Jesus who taught what the Old Testament scriptures and the commandments meant. He loved the […]

Love

Dec 27, 2021

I have been reading Fr. Gregory Boyle’s latest book, The Whole Language: The Power of Extravagant Tenderness. He might have just as well called it The Whole Language of Love. Fr. Boyle runs Homeboy and Homegirl Industries in East Los Angeles for ex-gang members he has invited to find a new way to live. One […]

The Fruit of the Spirit is Love

Aug 30, 2021

Over the last seven weeks I have been writing about the fruit of the Spirit. To me Paul is describing all the facets of love that we can aspire to in our lives, as we follow Jesus. These gifts from the Holy Spirit take us beyond human love which is very choosy about who is […]

The Fruit of the Spirit Love

Jul 12, 2021

  The fruit of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 is a description of the attitudes and mind-sets that we develop as we give our lives more and more over to God, as we give up the world’s viewpoints and adopt a broader, truer way of thinking and being. As the fruit ripens in us, we […]

God’s Love Expressed in Our Lives

Feb 15, 2021

2.15.21 God’s Love Expressed in Our LIves   I am convinced that we are to love, to value, to be interested in, to help everyone we meet. That is the way love works. If we follow Jesus, we are to engage with other people as love itself, God’s love, that is. It doesn’t matter if […]

We Are All In This Together

Dec 28, 2020

One great lesson from this year that has been dominated by Covid-19 is that we are all in this(whatever the this is) together. We are not each individuals trekking on our own through life, but we are part of the whole human race. Certainly, we could see that as the virus crossed the world easily […]

The Way to Love

Dec 07, 2020

I have been reading and rereading and taking notes on a little book called The Way to Love: The Last Meditations of Anthony de Mello. It is a book full of wisdom about love and what it takes to love like God loves. Anthony de Mello was an Indian Jesuit priest and psychotherapist who wrote […]

To Love as God Loves

Nov 02, 2020

To love as God loves means that we have to drop our prejudices and our judgments about others, we have to let go of everything that our culture has taught us and all that our ego desires, so that God’s love can flow through us unchanged. Our standard for love is God who “causes His […]
