Q. Our Catholic values include faith, hope, charity, forgiveness, the sanctity of life and others. Could you pick one of these, and tell us how can we better embrace it in our lives?
A. For me, charity is the greatest virtue/value we can ascribe to.
God is love. And we, as his emissaries and ambassadors, are called to conform ourselves to Jesus Christ in order to witness his divine love and charity towards all.
Unfortunately, many of us did not live up to this noble trust in our last election cycle. We were less than charitable toward the candidates, the opposing parties and even our own family members who happened to differ with us in our views.
Love brings people together. It builds community. It seeks the common good.
Divisive hate speech and castigation of anyone who disagrees with our viewpoint, does the opposite.
Pope Francis reminded us that we are about building bridges, not walls and was attacked for partisanship.
Since when does caring about neighbor constitute politics?
As children we were taught the Golden Rule. Yet, today many people act as if they’ve never heard of it.
We need to return to our values. Our foundation of sacrificial love (Jesus). If we live lives of love, then everything else will fall into place.
Perhaps it would help if we read and re-read St. Paul’s reflection on love in 1 Corinthians 13, it would give us a set of goals to aim for:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. -- 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
No one said these would be easy. We just need to commit ourselves one day at a time. And not allow anyone to provoke us into abandoning hope that we can achieve charity/love with God’s help.
