A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  -- John 13:34-35

Valentine's Day -- what else is there to say on this day but something about love?  In a world where the news catches entirely too much evidence of the lack of love, and a special calendar day is designated for love it's ironic that love is so absent.  Even the holiday today is morphing a little more each year into being a sappy sexualized observation somewhat far removed from the love Christ has for each of us.  Think on the love He had for each one of us today and what He gave to pass it on to each of us.  Then let St. Valentine's be imbibed with that love, Christ's love, and love one another with that eternal reality.   Amen.
