During the month of February we ‘press on’ To Love. The theological virtue of charity guides us to love God above all things for his own sake and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God. The practice of all virtues is inspired by charity. This virtue is a gift from God and motivates our good actions and raises them to the service of God. Let our prayers, sacrifices and almsgiving reflect this love as we begin this sacred season of Lent and Press On To Love.
“The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” 1 John 3:16
“Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
