Happy Valentine's Day
Today is Valentine's Day. Hearts are everywhere as a heart is the universal symbol of love.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus is burning with love for us. The Heart of Jesus is the source and symbol of God's love for us and we are called to live in that love: Abide in my love.
In today's Gospel Jesus tells us: "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Sister Wendy Beckett says that we only need to tap on the door and it is opened.
The Gospel today ends with "Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the law and the prophets."
Queen Esther, in the first reading for today's liturgy, prayed thus: "Help me, who am alone and have no help but you..."
May we all feel loved today and give God's love to all we meet!
