Prayer of the Day
Fourth Week of Easter – Feast of St. Matthias, ApostleMay 14th, 2014
It is so hard to love someone you don’t know. But it is even harder to love someone you do know. After all, the more you know someone, the harder it is to turn a blind eye at their defects. That’s what makes Christ’s love for us so admirable, so beautiful, and so loveable. He knows us. Every little bit of us and still, he loves us.
God commands us to love everyone not because we know them, but precisely because we will never know them. God knows everyone; and although He knows, he still continues to love. Love is the Christian’s net – the catch all – for those we know and do not know, because love can define who we are and who we were meant to be.
