The Strength of Love

We mortals have the tendency to underestimate one of our greatest strengths: our capacity to love.  Father Gregorio Hidalgo, better known as Father Goyo on Twitter, gives us a shining example:

 

A Catholic Priest by the name of Father Goyo took to Twitter to share a remarkable story of a young couple who wanted to get married. The catch? The young bride had cancer and not much time to live.

Father Goyo shares what happened when the groom approached him about doing the wedding.

Have tissues handy. You’re going to need them.

Go here to read the rest.  Christ told us that the two greatest commandments were to love God and love Man.  He told us with our love of God we could perform miracles.  In the face of human love demons quail, and the Grim Reaper stands frustrated in silence.  By ourselves we are but poor animals.  With the love of God, reflected in our ability to love our fellow Man, we stand above the angels.

God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

1 John 4:16
