Four Types of Love
Here’s my homily from November 4, 2018. Jesus explains the greatest commandment: Love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self — which is not a narcissistic love, but a recognition that if God loves me, we should live in a way that that honors that love.
That leads to the fourth kind of love Jesus often teaches about which is even more fundamental : God’s personal, passionate, perpetual love for us! We can’t earn it or win it. It’s not that we love God, but that he first loved us!
