Love is kind

My God, My God, I love you!

This is a simple saying, yet it means so much! Christ needs our love, in fact, He demands our love. He says, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." Christ loves us with the most Perfect Love, so shouldn't we atleast try to love Him the same way back? Obviously, we are just humans, and we will never be perfect. But like all the saints before us, we sure as heck can try! Christ deserves our most perfect love that we can offer Him because of the love that He has shown us. No other human on this earth should recieve the love that we should have for Christ. How hard is this, though? So very, very hard, but Christ definitely smiles and blesses those upon whom atleast try. If you find yourself, like I so often do, not feeling like you can love Him enough, pray and ask that you may have this love for Him. If it is your true desire to deeply love Him, but you just don't feel like you are doing a good enough job, Christ will grant you your desires. "Ask and you shall recieve." Mary is a beautiful model of this indeed! A mother's love is so perfect for her child, and Mary was free of sin, so she was able to love Christ wholeheartedly. She was able to gaze upon his face and fall in love with every inch of His body and soul. We should strive to do the same, especially when we are in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Ask Mary to pray for you so that you may be granted more perfect love for her son. "The way to a man's heart is through his mother." And what a Sacred Heart He has! : )
