The message of Jesus is love

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”  (Mt. 22:36-39)

The core of our faith and the message of Jesus is love. Eternal and everlasting love is reason for the Incarnation itself – Christ became human because God’s great love for His people.
This month, we explore ways to share the love with each other and remember that the true source of love is not the romantic love we see in popular culture – but the foundation of Christian love is sacrifice and service to one another. May your love for God and neighbor grow as you share your faith this month and always.
Blessings on your family!
