Praise GOD that LOVE is the Only Reality ..and GOD is LOVE.
Something Pope Francis seems to reflect quite Lovingly.
From the interview:
“But the proclamation of the saving love of God comes before moral and religious imperatives. [The previous sentence is the important one!!] Today sometimes it seems that the opposite order is prevailing. The homily is the touchstone to measure the pastors proximity and ability to meet his people, because those who preach must recognise the heart of their community and must be able to see where the desire for God is lively and ardent. The message of the Gospel, therefore, is not to be reduced to some aspects that, although relevant, on their own do not show the heart of the message of Jesus Christ.
The sermon (Protestant) last Sunday had a prop of three real doors (all rigged up on frames and everything!). The first was of humanistic values. The second was Religion. Neither of those contained the abundant and eternal life. The third door was Jesus - the real answer to abundant and eternal Life.
I think the pope is saying something similar.
