Join Fr. Thaddaeus Lancton, MIC, on a journey of discovering the depths of what it means to be a Christian, marked by love, in the spirit of St. Paul's 1 Cor 13.

Today Fr. Thaddaeus concludes his series presenting on 1 Cor 13:8-13.

Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Thanks Father Thaddeus for these series detailing the profound meaning of true love. I hope and pray that your teaching will impact the hearts of many in helping us to practice agape love which is the mark of a true Christian. As you explained in these series, agape love is Divine love, because it is eternal - the greatest of all virtues; and will be the only virtue that will remain with us for all eternity in Heaven. As followers of Christ our lives should reflect what Jesus did on the cross for us. We should follow in His footsteps by living God's way of love and practicing it in our daily lives, proving it by bearing all things and rendering service to each other - unconditionally even reaching out to our enemies. This is not so easy given our human weaknesses. We therefore must reflect on these teachings and pray about it for God Our Father to give us the strength to do it - always.
Like you said, whenever we mark ourselves with the sign of the cross, we should be reminded of the eternal love which first existed between the Father and the Son, and the love relationship between them: the Holy Spirit.
Now, each time I make the sign of the cross I will think about love as an everlasting virtue.

The sacraments (especially confession and holy Eucharist, Divine Mercy, rosary, sacred heart prayers, the scriptures,teachings of the Church - tends to strengthen our WILLS to be able to live and practice agape love.
THANKS FATHER THADDEUS, for this wealth of information on agape love that you've provided.
