Celebrate Love from Reverend Laura

Celebrate Love from Reverend Laura

This month, we celebrate Love!  On Valentine’s Day we honor a priest who risked death to marry young couples in a time when the church banned marriage for the sake of recruiting single men for war.  On President’s Day we recognize the leadership of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and other great presidents.  All month long we remember great African Americans who contributed to the growth and enrichment of our country, and to each of us, through Black History Month.  While you may never lead a nation, start a major movement, or become a canonized Saint, you, too, can make a positive difference when you give yourself to a love that is greater than your personal needs.  This month I invite you to give yourself to this kind of love, and to know the joy of the greatest commandment in the gospels to “love one another.”
