Thought of the Day August 11, 2016

By 11:27 AM

"We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become. If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing. Imitation is not a literal mimicking of Christ, rather it means becoming the image of the beloved, an image disclosed through transformation. This means we are to become vessels of God's compassionate love for others." (St. Clare of Assisi) How true are her reflections! Think about it. "We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become." What do you love? Who do you love? Ultimately, it comes down to: Do we truly love Christ? Are we in love with Christ? If so, our love of Christ will then dictate our love for others. If not, we will find that no other love will ever fully satisfy the deeper longings within us.
