“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments.’”
Jesus is not a bargainer; He simply reminds us that when we love, nothing is too much; obedience to his commandments expresses our love for him since we are then free.
Freedom is doing what we ought to do, not what we want to do.
How will you express such love today?
Heritage word—“If we love, we can trust ourselves to seek the truth.”
(Sister Joan Marie, 9th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
