Love....

I heard an ad on the radio today about the month of February being the month dedicated to "love". Actually, I saw the merchandise out in late December reminding me that soon there would come a day in February, a day where "love" is celebrated. I found it interesting that the Holy Father just published his first encyclical, which for all providential purposes, is about love. Now, i have not had a chance to read it yet, but I have a sneaky feeling that these 2 views on love differ greatly.

So, what is love? If I had a dollar for everytime I heard someone mention, "Love is about how you feel", you'd be suprised as to how much cash I would have! Now, those of you who are married are laughing right now, and I guess it surprises me how often I hear that myself, but it's true.

It seems that the world has forgotten Christmas already, even though we still have a couple of days of the actual season left. I was at the mall not too long ago and I noticed that stores were already putting their Valentine decorations, cards and chocolates out so people could spend some more money. lol! It seems that the world moves on so fast. Tragedy is forgotten, happiness is forgotten, technology cruises on at a blistering pace and it just seems that the media is always saying, "NEXT"!

No wonder people, especially the lowly, are forgotten and neglected. The young, the sick, the aged and others are pushed to the side in search of the next big thing, the next excitement, the next fleeting image of health and beauty.

Have you ever noticed some of the weather reports? It came to me one day as I listening to the weather that people never seem quite content. When there is no …
