Love and freedom

Turn on the radio, the TV, open a book, a magazine, and you will soon and repeatedly be confronted with the big lie of the culture that enslaves. Fr. Speekman, writing about Sunday's Gospel (It is not those who say to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, who will enter the kingdom of heaven), and how to avoid hearing the dreadful words "begone... I have never known you",

The decision to love heroically is actualised in an utterly simple way; the lover must obey the demands of love. Keep, observe, obey the commandments are the words Moses uses. The verbs are active because love is not a feeling. Love is an act and the blessing is realised when we keep the commandments.
Did you catch that? love is not a feeling. The freedom of the children of God is here; the contrary lie of the culture is the path of slavery. well, follow the link and read the rest of it!

Thanks, Father, for being a clear voice!

I bought a webcam to bring myself a bit further forward on the technology curve. 25 years ago I was writing software for this sort of product, and the product today? well, I'm not impressed...
