Love is patience and goodness, love is neither jealous nor proud, it is neither arrogant nor rude. Love does not insist on his own path. Do not get angry and do not get angry. He does not rejoice in evil, but rejoices in good. Love holds everything, believes in everything, hopes for everything.
We know from experience that only the saints are capable of the love that St. Paul described. We love others to some extent, including our flesh and blood, a love that embraces jealousy and pride. “You no longer deserve my love,” parents and lovers say when they are disappointed or disappointed.
That is why we are all experts not in love, but in romantic love, in its joys and sorrows, its sweetness and its bitterness. Our tenderness to our fellow men for what economists call “teachers”, there is a limit, our tenderness. We just love it so far, whether it is waist or neck.
But some time ago, a strong woman once said that you love 100% or do not like her at all, because it is illogical to love someone 80 or 90%. This may be true of the profound romantic love poets and philosophers have sung across the ages.
Plato described love as a “temporary madness.” Oscar Wilde said that you should not expect the beloved to be conservative, while Alexander Pope believed it was impossible to love and be wise.
The wisdom of the ages is not followed by lovers, however, which proves that poets and philosophers spoke the truth. But where will we all be without love?
In the first place, there will be no Valentine’s Day: trade will suffer miserably on that day: no trade for florists, jewelery, restaurants and hotels, and let’s not forget, motels.

He was ready to bear his passion in order to make up for our transgressions and catch up with his heavenly father. He gave his life for our sake. It is a mystery of why we loved us. But he loved us, he did it. His passion began in the Gethsemane Park, where he anticipated the suffering he would endure us. Just thinking about it made him sweat.
Thorns are crowned and insulted. He carried the wood of the cross and fell three times as weak. Nailed to the cross and died. All of this was to reconcile us with the Father. Because he loved us and all he wants is our love in return.
We all know that. Some evangelical Protestants outperform Catholics, making this return of love. In general, some Protestants seem to return this love with greater enthusiasm. I am sure there are many Catholics who give this love completely. The story ends with his resurrection from the dead. With him we will rise from the dead.
On the other hand, all he asks of us is to love him. How do you express this love? We pray in worship and we continue to ask him about the things that we need or want. He tells us that the best way to love him is to obey his commandments and requests. It is simple. We love God above everything and our neighbor as ourselves. More specifically, we are asked to honor the father and mother. And do not kill, lie, commit adultery, or steal. Beyond that, all we can offer.
As one evangelist once said to the Catholic: “If I truly believe that the Eucharist is God, then I will be on my knees before the Eve, day and night.” However, the Lord wants us to sanctify our daily life so that it will serve as a prostration for us before the Eucharist.
