The greatest is love

September 17, 2014 12:24 pm

“So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor 13: 13)

A well-known triad: faith, hope and love; the foundation of Christian life. The greatest of these is love because it never fails and never ends. In heaven only love will remain; faith will see and hope will be fulfilled. Whatever we do because of love, we come closer to God, and whenever we try to grow in any attribute of love, we act similar to God.

“It was not you who chose me, says the Lord, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.” (Communion Antiphon)
