Actual Love 17 Oct 2019
On the days I work, I make a small drawing and send it through the Internet to the phone of Millet. It is just a little sign of my love and appreciation for her. I am not good in making drawings. But this little exercise increases my confidence.
Rejoice and be Glad (Gaudete et Exsultate)
85. Certainly there can be no love without works of love, but this Beatitude reminds us that the Lord expects a commitment to our brothers and sisters that comes from the heart. For "if I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have no love, I gain nothing" (1 Cor 13:3). In Matthew's Gospel too, we see that what proceeds from the heart is what defiles a person (cf. 15:18), for from the heart come murder, theft, false witness, and other evil deeds (cf. 15:19). From the heart's intentions come the desires and the deepest decisions that determine our actions.
