Currently, I am reading a wonderful and inspiring book entitled, John Paul the Great: Remembering a Spiritual Father by Peggy Noonan. The book is filled with so many nuggets of wisdom and one spoke straight to my heart this particular this morning.
Without love of neighbor, says John Paul, genuine love for God is not possible. He quotes Saint John the Apostle: “If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.”
This book is so inspirational, I think I could read it once a month for the rest of my life!
