In the gospel of John the Lord says: "In this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for each other." In a letter of the same apostle we read: "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God, for God is love."
It is through prayer that we come to know God and His great love for us. It is through prayer that we open ourselves to that love that we might carry it to all those we meet each day. God bless!!
