You have lost the love you had at first

“Yet I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first.” (RV 2: 4-5)

St. John reminds us today of two things. First—“you have lost the love you had at first”; love needs to be protected; we can lose “the love we had at first.” Second—“do the works you did at first”; love is in actions not in emotions; love needs to “do the works”; we can always go back and start with “the works we did at first.”

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
