Love is the essence of Jesus. His love is radical and scandalous! We are called to love not like the popular world sense but with an ideal of Justice.

Jesus loved the outcast and sinners. He reached out to others-the wider world. He was inclusive with a compassionate love. Jesus treated women with equality, loved people of all races and religious backgrounds.

The bar is high for us. In 208 let us practice Jesus love- an inclusive, non-judgmental openness to all.We are called to be light with the divine life of God living within us, as we do now, let us continually do now in the year ahead.
