Sons of Ignatius: What is love?

July 2, 2024 in Uncategorized

What is love? Fr. Niall’s homily offers a three-fold answer: Eros (passionate, romantic love), Philia (friendship and political love) and Agape (the free, lasting love that comes from God.) That Agape love comes from God is a wonderful message from St. John that people need to know. Being loved by God is not about working harder, “copping on” or everyone pulling their socks up. We can always turn to God, acknowledge the poverty of our ability to love, and ask for the grace of His love. Featuring St. John, St Ignatius of Loyola and St. Thomas Aquinas, as well as Taylor Swift and the Bellamy Brothers.
