Feast of St. John, Apostle and Evangelist

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”

                                                                        1 John 4: 7-11

 

For Reflection:

According to St. John’s definition of love, to what extent am I a loving person?  How can loving God more and receiving more of His love help me to increase my ability to love?
