WHAT IS LOVE? TRUE LOVE IS CHASTE LOVE! POPE FRANCIS TO YOUTH IN TURIN In his address to the youth of Turin during his Pastoral Visit this weekend, Pope Francis delineated the characteristics of true love. Briefly, Pope Francis told the young people gathered for the occasion saying that TRUE LOVE: Is more in DEEDS that in words; It COMMUNICATES. It LISTENS and ANSWERS. It is lived in a communion.

“REMAIN IN MY LOVE…LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I LOVE YOU (Jn 15: 9.12).” Christ’s love: A love that totally gives itself in concrete deeds and a love that forgives.


“REMAIN IN MY LOVE…LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I LOVE YOU (Jn 15: 9.12).” LOVE THAT GIVES AND A LOVE THAT FORGIVES. In a post I uploaded several weeks ago in my Facebook page, someone commented in a seemingly incredulous and pessimistic tone: “Imitate Christ’s virtues?…Really?” Well, in the Gospel, Our Lord Jesus Christ reminds us once again: “REMAIN IN MY LOVE…LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I LOVE YOU (Jn 15: 9.12).” “AS I LOVE YOU”: He told us the manner on how to []

CHRIST’S WAY? THE WAY OF LOVE!


JESUS’ SACRED HEART is the CHIEF SIGN and SYMBOL of HIS IMMENSE and NEVER-ENDING LOVE FOR HUMANITY, pierced for our sins and for our salvation and that this preparation can be summed up by two ideas: LOVE and REPARATION. BUT WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF CHRIST’S LOVE FOR US? We can have a glimpse of these with St. Josemaria’s words: “CHRIST’S WAY CAN BE SUMMED UP IN ONE WORD: LOVE. If we are to love, we must have a BIG HEART and []

THE SECRET TO HOLINESS? LOVE!


Yes, LOVE! But don’t get it wrong. We are not talking here about  love as a mere feeling, nor an attraction….but rather of LOVE WHICH IS AN ACT OF THE WILL. Yes…LOVE can be shown and be present ─ even without experiencing any feeling─  because as an ACT OF THE WILL, a person who loves WANTS TO MAKE HIS BELOVED HAPPY, even though he doesn’t feel anything, and EVEN IF IT MEANS RENOUNCING ONE’S SELF TO MAKE THE BELOVED HAPPY. Yes…LOVE and []
