We are born with the potential to love; but we are made for a deeply personal love! Love is not simply an emotion; but rather is a skill we can develop. Jesus challenges us to do that, and his Death and Resurrection make it possible!
St. John Paul II said “Man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it. This, as has already been said, is why Christ the Redeemer “fully reveals man to himself”.” Read more St. John Paul II’s Redemptor Hominis here
