I have not sent out a reflection in a couple of days for two reasons. First our server at church was being redone and we couldn’t send a message for a few days. Second, one of my very best friends in Indiana died, and Sheila and I rushed back there to do his vigil and funeral !
Today’s first reading is one of the most widely selected for weddings. It’s used in way over half of all the weddings I have done. St. Paul tells us that love is patient and love is kind. It is not rude and does not seek its own interests. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. This is how it’s suppose to be, but this may not be our experience of love.
The good news is that the one love that never fails is God’s love for us. His love is the one love you can always count on being there. Everyday he gives us numerous ways to encounter his love in prayer, in nature, in our loved ones and in our family. He also gives us endless opportunities to share his love with others. So follow Paul’s advice and pursue love wherever you see it, because God’s love has always been pursuing you !
