The sole aim of our life: to be love

Some, including the New York Times, want to perpetuate left/right divisions in the Church.  Recovering Lawyer, Heather King has a profound response on her Shirt of Flame blog.  Her is a taste:

To kiss the feet of AIDS patients and drug addicts, as Pope Francis has done,
comes from an entire being that has been formed, has been disciplined, and has
as its sole aim love. You don't have charity in one area and not in another. You
don't offer up one part of yourself and keep another. You offer it all. You lay
down your life.

Broken, stumbling, poor as we are--that's what we do  best.

Our call to Holiness is a call to Love, but how we Love will determine if it is according to Authentic Love or its counterfeit. That is how they will know we are Christian, by how we Love.

that kind of act of our previous Pope John is exactly what Jesus Christ did before to our people who needs to be healed by his power..
