More Love

Love is a beautiful experience.
Love changes us. Grows us. Matures us.
To love and to be loved is to be human.

There are different kinds of love.

Friendship love is when there is a person or persons in your life that shares common interests, that you are mutually attracted to, and that you want to spend time with...that is friendship love, and it is a beautiful love.

Erotic love is many things, but simply put, it is the genital expression of union between two lovers. It is a beautiful love.

There is also, to use a greek word, "agape" love. This is a love and compassion that a human being can have for all other human beings. It is a universal love. It is the love that God has for us. It is the love that we most need.

Even when our friends and lovers turn from us, God's love remains.
This universal love is the source and ultimate fulfillment of our lives.
It is a love that we need to discover and learn how to live out of.

In St.John's first letter he says "beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love."

We are made for Divine Love. It is the one reality that completes us and makes us whole.
Jesus fully reveals this Love to us. Let us get to know Him more, to know this Love more, to love one another more.
