Living the Call to Love

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Friday June 21, 2024

When asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus quoted the famous verse from Deuteronomy 6, "Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." The second is like it, "Love your neighbor." Since the dawn of the Church, we Christians have been striven to live this high calling, albeit clumsily. Despite our failings, our vast network of hospitals, schools, universities, and orphanages, that we've built over the last two millemina is a testament to living this call of love.
