Unfortunately at this time a man's heart is far from listening to God, wobbles and lurches in the storms of the crisis in the world, in this society that tends to trivialize crime and to defend immorality.
We got lost in the storm of the senses, overwhelmed by massive flows of passions and succumb to them. So we must be willing to accept the invitation of God to free the heart from slavery to passions to make it full of His love.
Communion with God
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a resounding gong or metal cymbals which rattle.
And if I have the gift of prophecy, if you understand all mysteries and all knowledge, if I owned a lot of faith to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods and deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is benevolent; is not jealous, it does not boast, is not puffed up with pride, not rude, not seek its own interests, does not get angry, do not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
The charity will never end. There are prophecies, tongues cease and knowledge will vanish ... they remain, therefore, these three things: faith, hope and charity. But the greatest of these is love.
(1Cor. 13, 1-13).
Sometimes love is confused with the feeling of emotions, how many times a tragic situation affects us and generates deep that feeling that moves us to tears, but it all ends there, because we believe that others will have to take action and take action. Then our mind will be captured by other situations and other events. Charity is not the result of momentary emotion but it is the active expression of love, it lives and feeds love, without it cannot exist, live and work.
So, what is charity? One cannot understand the essence of charity if the first did not understand what true love is. Those who truly love are also willing to give their lives for their loved one. As reflected in those mothers who did not hesitate to sacrifice for the sake of their children. Love does risk calculations, no negotiation on earnings, not weigh their future. Now sees the need for action towards your loved one. Who he loves does not fear renunciation, hard work and is willing to do anything to hasten in all circumstances for the good of the beloved. If it is natural, as it should be, for a run in the mother of their child needs, like it should be easy to rush to any person you love. It is the fire that triggers the love of the heart where does the driving force of action for the good of the beloved. How you can remain inactive before the suffering and the needs of the beloved? No, you cannot, it is the heart that goes beyond his own reason, in addition to their own selfishness, a momentum that cannot because in it is contained all their essence.
Who really experienced this force knows the power. True love draws directly to the furnace of God's heart. These are fiery darts that feed the desire for good that burns without burning and pushes to act always to the highest good. Only with the human feelings we can hardly consider the people you love the children, and the wife, and the love of God captures your heart, elevates your soul on a horizon where the others are your brothers in God, your heart no longer be able to discriminate against this or that, everyone will be understood through the love of God. We can see in action the saints, this active love, true compassion and timeless made to hasten them next to the most needy to bring even through a smile, the light of God.
This force of love of neighbor is charity that nothing questions and gives everything. Without the love of God you cannot possess it. Then, for each of us opens up the possibility of having this force as long as we allow ourselves to turn from God's love. How to say the words of the Gospel: "Nothing is impossible with God".
When a plant is deprived of water and sunlight, quickly it fades, decays and dies. Similarly the person who is deprived of love lost the taste for life. This love that neither time nor the trials of life will be able to consume, is found only in God. Every man is attracted to a single love that transcends, exceeds and transforms. Love is life. Love is like blood flowing in his veins, is the beating heart, is like the seeing eye, is the ear that hears God in all reality.
Love desires rise to the top without being held back by earthly things. Demands to be free to have no obstacles to peer within, not to suffer hindrance in temporal interests and not be overwhelmed by any difficulty. Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing is stronger, taller or bigger, full of joy, more good, in heaven or on earth, because love comes from God and only in God can find rest.
Those who love flies, runs happily; He gives everything for all, and all in all, anyone finds his supreme peace in the One from whom descends and comes all that is good; He does not look at what is donated, but look to the giver.
Love knows no measure at that fervor that crosses all borders. Love takes no account of fatigue, longs for more than he cannot reach, he does not put forward excuses, because he believes that everything is possible and easy. Those who love can do everything, but who does not love, he fails in his intent. Love watches even in sleep, and does not give up even if overwhelmed and fatigued. He erupts upward and proceeds sure how ardent and open flame. Love is: responsive, sincere, devoted, happy, serene, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long-suffering, manly and always selfless.
Sometimes we realize that we cannot love God and our neighbor because we fail even to love ourselves. Our heart aches when you have true love, the only one who could quench completely until intoxication is the love of God because it has an incomparable strength and an inexpressible properties that regenerate the human heart and gives him a complete joy.
Charity burns any negative feelings: anger, jealousy, revenge, envy, arrogance, the thirst, contempt and exploitation. Its fruits are: joy, peace and generosity.
