"Love is an experience"
This is what Fr Savio De Sales finally concluded after he had taken in all the responses to the question, "What is Love". The responses were varied ......
"The Greatest gift of God"
So Fr concluded the above ... He said you cant define Love but you can experience it!
This was the second day of the Missions in our parish. I dragged my feet to church and was tired and in a grumpy mood. Mama said that Fr Savio had asked for youth to be present since his talk was going to be on relationships. The topic got me even more irritated, we get a lot of these! In my mind the talk would take this course....
----> Relationship with God
---> with your parents and
This is what I have heard time after time and I was in no mood of going to hear the same thing all over again. I sill went, I don't know why. I was irritated, but I still went. And like most of the things that I don't want to do but still do, I ended up liking the talk.
Among the many things that Fr Savio talked about, the one thing that I mulled over was the difficulty to tell the people we love that we love them, just saying those three words, "I Love You". Sometimes those three little words can call on every ounce of strength to say. Yes, it is thrown loosely around now days, but when it has emotions and sincere intentions attached, it can be one of the most difficult things to say and one of the most wondrous things to hear.
At such moments a nourishing relationship can give you the strength to say "I Love You" and sometimes it is saying that "I Love You" that gives you strength.
At anytime however, it is wiser to let Fear lose and Love win. To do this is hard, but the more difficult it is, the more sublime it feels!
It feels great to say an "I Love You".
It feels great to have some one say it to you.
Don't wait. Whom did u say those three little words to today?
