Lent: Unconditional Love

This video deals with a subject that pretty much all of us deal with at one point or another.  And usually, we approach the concept of "unconditional love" from the point that, Jesus gave His love unconditionally, and we must strive to emulate that.  Certainly, that is true, and WWJD (What would Jesus Do?) is absolutely something to consider in all aspects of your life.

But!  For today, I want you to think about people in your own life - parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, teachers, mentors, etc. - and figure out who has provided you with what felt to you like unconditional love and acceptance, support and belonging?  Think back on times with them, and how you felt.  What did they do differently than other people?  What did you do differently that allowed you to accept that love from them?

Because Br. Robert is correct - we are often our own worst enemy when it comes to being able to accept unconditional love.

So now take it the next step.  Have you accepted the unconditional love that Christ brings to you?
