Sins against charity harm the sinner more than the person who is the object of the unkindness. Deep wounds are the result of choices to withhold love from others. Nothing is more unattractive than a hardened heart.

We must be renewed each day in charity. May our experience of God’s love for us reband in acts of charity toward others.

Dear God, make my capacity for love ample and deep. May I be loving to others as I come to rely on Your Love for me.
