Repay Love with Love!

“The work of creation is a work of love. God created us out of love. Like a father, He guides our steps along the paths of life. You shall therefore love the Lord your God, and keep his charge, his statutes, his ordinances and his commandments always.(Dt 11, 1-2)

It was love that moved God to create us, to redeem us by sending his Son, who offered Himself as a victim of expiation to be paid on our behalf, in order to make reparation for our sins. If God had not loved us, we would not exist; we should have remained in nothingness. Hence, it is our duty, in gratitude, in appreciation, in justice and in equity, to love God above all things, to repay Love with love, to pay for love with love, as we Portuguese say.”
