Faith, Hope, and Love


“So faith, hope, and love remain, these three, but the greatest of these is love.” I Corinthians 13:13

This passage allows us a chance to reflect upon our priorities.  It tells us that at the end of the day it will not be the school we attended, the number of degrees we have, the amount of money we make  or our zip code that matters. Rather, we will be judged by our fidelity to God, our hope in Christ and the power of his Resurrection, and the love that we show ourselves and our neighbor. It is as simple as that.  St. Bernard of Clairvaux said “Theirs is an endless road, a hopeless maze, who seek for goods before they seek God.”

As the days that shorter in my life I am reminded each day what matters is to Love God, and to give my all to people.  That is all that matters. Yesterday I purchased a sleeping bag for one guy, bought glasses for another, and looking into their eyes, and hearing their voices was all the wealth that I needed.
