Neither love of God nor love of neighbor is complete without the other. One completes and fulfills the other. Each, in turn, reflects the magnificent beauty of who God is.
Everything depends on love. There is no justice, no peace, and no hope, without charity. Even being human is impossible without love.
O God, may my experience of being loved by You respond to my love for You and for my neighbor. May I be generous like You when I am called to encounter You in my brothers and sisters today.
