Reflection 9.30.15

The God of Jesus never wearies of loving freely and making constant demands. His gratuitous love overflows the dikes of our self-centeredness and false securities. Faith is not something to be kept in a strong cage for protection; it is a life that finds expression in love and self-giving to others. In the Gospels, fear means a lack of faith. How is it possible to love without taking risks? …A Christian life focused not on formalities and self-protection but on self-giving and a feeling for others represents true fidelity to the Lord.
