The Power of Love
Father Briere's reflections help bring a greater understanding of what love truly is, how we can be open to receiving the love of God into our hearts, and how we can then share this love with the world.
"We are made for love", Father Briere reminds us. "To be loved and to love is our destiny. Our greatness is to be able to love Another and to give oneself to Him and to others, thus preparing ourselves for the full life of heaven, where each belongs to each without fears, reservations, or limitations. There the beauty and goodness of God and of others will literally "take us out of ourselves" in an enduring and growing ecstasy of joy. Perfect love casts out all fears. God's love is perfect. Open your heart to it and all your fears will quickly and definitely disappear. Let us live today in the gentle power of God's love."
"To love is to give all that one possesses and all that one is. God, who is love, gives all that He possesses, all that He is, first in creation, and more fully in the Person of His Son. We are called to imitate Christ, and we do so by self-giving, by loving."
This is what the world needs...more love. And it starts with us knowing deep within our hearts the love God has for each and every one of us. Only then can we accept that love, and in turn pour it out onto those around us.
