"Jesus says something remarkable to us : 'greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.' Love always takes this path: to give one's life. To live life as a gift, a gift to be given--not a treasure to be stored away." (Pope Francis) We say we love. We do and we don't. Does our love measure up to the litmus test that Jesus speaks of? To love is to die to self. To love is to be other focused. To love is to wish the best for the other. Love is life-giving; selfishness is life-taking. Lent is a special time of grace given to us by God so that our love may reflect his love even to the death of the cross.
