But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the spiritual
“But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the spiritual. The first man was from the earth, earthly; the second man, from heaven. As was the earthly one, so also are the earthly, and as is the heavenly one, so also are the heavenly. Just as we have borne the image of the earthly one, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly one.” (1 COR 15: 46-49)
This is our strategy with our Love and Life Programs. Because “the first man was from the earth, earthly; the second man, from heaven,” we start from the earthly perspective, from what we can do to improve our relationship. Of course we remember that we are also “the heavenly one,” and we also have spiritual Programs, but first things first.
“I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
