" "Our Lord is loved by so few, because few consider the pains He has suffered for us; but he that frequently considers them cannot live without loving Jesus." – Meditation on the Passion

Listen To The Prophets!

The prophet Hosea reminds us today (Hosea 11:1-4 ,8e-9) that the history of mankind is a story of unrequited love  – God loving man but man not loving Him in return. God has given us every thing we need. Yet, the more we receive the less grateful we have become.   Despite our ingratitude and our failure to love Him as we ought and in a manner our God deserves, He still loves us. He went to the cross, suffered and died for us, knowing that far too many of us would never appreciate His sacrifice or benefit eternally from it. Oh, that we would love Him as unconditionally as He loves us!
