God wants nothing more than to love you and to be loved by you. If you are like me, that did not sink in. Read slowly, God wants nothing more than to love you and to be loved by you. The infinite, all-powerful God that created the universe and everything in it wants to be in a relationship of love with you. You are kindof a big deal.
“The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” This is a quote from the movie, Moulin Rouge. It rings with stunny truth. God is love and God is also a family, so God is a family of love!
And how is the truest of loves lived out? By giving of oneself completely and receiving the other completely, who is giving themself completely. Jesus gives Himself completely to us at Mass in the Eucharist. Indeed, He gave Himself completely to us in His Passion. Will you give yourself completely in return?
I loved you before time came to be. Please be my Valentine. – God
