“The second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments the whole law is based, and the prophets as well.”
We know that before we can love others we must love ourselves. When we love ourselves, we freely tend to our spiritual, mental, physical and psychological needs, realizing that we need to grow as whole persons who will meet successes and mistakes along the way.
How well do you love your whole self?
How well do you accept your neighbor regardless of his/her strengths and weaknesses?
Heritage word—“Our grateful love prompts us to appreciate and to care for one another.”
(Constitutions of the Sisters of Notre Dame, article 57)
