Thought of the Day August 11, 2017 Transforming power of love

By 9:47 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) If God is the object of our love, then that love will transform us into becoming the fullest person we were created to be. The love of God and the love of others will become more than a command but a way of life, leading us to the fullness of life. This is the path Jesus, in his humanity, walked, lived and taught. To be a disciple is to follow and act on his example in the present moment. “We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become.”
