We have all been created for greater things...to love and to be loved. Love is love...to love a person without any conditions, without expectations. Works of love are works of peace and purity. Works of love are always a means of becoming closer to God, so the more we help each other, the more we really love God better by loving each other. Jesus very clearly said; Love one another as I have loved you. Love in action is what gives us grace. We pray and if we are able to love with a whole heart, then each of us will see the need in others. Those who are unwanted, unloved, and uncared for become just throwaways in the secular minds of society. That is why we must really make everybody feel wanted.
There is something else to remember....that this kind of love begins at home. We cannot truly give of ourselves to others, what we do not already possess inside our own hearts.
This is very important. If I cannot see God's love inside my brothers and sisters, then how can I see that love in somebody else ? Indeed how can I give it to somebody else ?
Everybody has got some good inside them. Some hide it, some neglect it, but it is there.

No affliction nor temptation, no guilt nor power of sin, no wounded spirit nor terrified conscious should induce us to despair comfort from God.
Today well lived...makes every tomorrow a vision of Hope.
