The Purpose of Life

A reflection that came upon me today:

The very aim our our lives is to know and love God. In humbling ourselves and experiencing the most radical poverty, we unite ourselves deeper with Our Lord, who became for us all a prison of love. And only through the door of the Cross can we escape our prison of sin and into the loving arms of Our Father, who ransomed us by His own blood.

Many people ask what is love. But I must clarify that love is a person - His name is Jesus Christ.

There comes a time as we journey in life when we realize the utter beauty of our faith. Know that Christ loves you! It was for you that He died. As his hands, which healed so many, and his feet, which walked on water, where pierced with steel, He was thinking and loving you. Only in seeking to become united with Him through faith and the sacraments do we experience an inner love unlike any other. For God is love. Think sit and think about that...God is love.
