Made for Love - Pope Benedict XVI

Made for Love

"We were made to receive love, and we have. Every day we should thank God for the love we have already known. For the love that has made us who we are. The love that is shown us what is truly important in life.

We need to thank the Lord for the love we have received from our families, our friends, our teachers, and all those people in our lives who have helped us to realize how precious we are in their eyes, and in the eyes of God. We were also made to give love, to make the inspirational for all we do, and the most enduring thing in our lives."

From Benedict Everyday:
Christian life begins with a call and is itself always a response, until the end….The Lord has called each of us; each is called by name. God is so great that He has time for each of us. He knows me, He knows each of us by name, personally…We must meditate on this mystery again and again: God, the Lord, has called me, He calls me, He knows me and awaits my response as He awaited Mary's response, as He awaited the response of the Apostles.
