hold on to what is good

May 31, 2019 6:00 am

“Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.” (ROM 12: 9-10)

“Love one another with mutual affection” is connected with “let love be sincere.” How easily we can misunderstand love. Witnessing so many marital crises, when people decide to quit because they no longer love each other, we try to remind them during our Programs that love is in actions, not merely in words and emotions: “hold on to what is good,” “be sincere,” “hate what is evil,” and “show honor.” We can always ask Our Lady to teach us how to love.

“Blessed are you, O Virgin Mary, who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” (Gospel Acclamation)
