CHAPTER LXXXI: TWO HEARTS OF WIT & WISDOM
(FINAL CHAPTER)
LOVE WHERE IS THY STING?
Mother Angelica's T.V. Station EWTN, Irondale, Alabama 35210 has some wonderful speakers--laymen and women, bishops, priests, one can take a new course in Religion--just listening to these wonderful talks.
Recently one of the priests came up with this one:
There is such a thing as:
RESPECTFUL
REVERENTIAL
LOVE
Now, what is that all about?
Unless there is between husband and wife this very RESPECTFUL--REVERENTIAL--LOVE you have instead:
Hatefulness
Unkindness
Uncharitableness
Uncouthness
Irritableness
Insultingness
Disagreeableness
You name it.
There is No Peace--continuous in-fighting--War! Finally divorce.
Not only between husband and wife should there be that RESPECTFUL & REVERENTIAL LOVE, but also between Brothers and Sisters in the secular life AND in the religious life! Yes, think about it.
Also between friends and neighbors and relations there should be that
RESPECTFUL
REVERENTIAL
RESERVED
LOVE
'Reserved' Love--what's that? Yes, not ALL-Love, which belongs to Almighty God--He is a 'jealous' God. Remember Jesus' Command:
"Thou shalt love the Lord Thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole soul and with thy whole mind."
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." St. Matt. 22/35.
AMEN
