(From a 2012 Lent and Easter series of sermons on the Catholic Virtues.)
A favorite Scripture quote of Protestants is John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
God gave His Son – conceived in Mary of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem of Judea, to announce the good news that God loves us, and that love fulfills the Law, and that if we love one another God’s life is drawing us to Himself, Who is Love.God loves us that much, to give His Son for us; but we should not think of this as a human father giving up his son for someone else’s benefit. We would think such a father monstrous. If you don’t love and protect your own child, how could you love someone else’s? But Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one God, love with one love, act with one benevolent will toward the world they together created and destined for happy fulfillment. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, is the visible manifestation of this divine love, of the infinite fullness of being that is perfect joy and generosity.
Our human relationships of love – between friends, between spouses, between parent and child – reflect something of this divine love at the heart of the universe. They reflect it, participate in it, and prepare for it; which is why our human loving relationships are so important: they are preparing us, fitting us out and equipping us for the life of heaven, the life of God.No wonder, then, that St. Paul could write what he did to the Corinthians in his first letter to them. He reviewed some of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, like speaking in tongues and prophesy, and wrote that without love these gifts avail nothing. Even giving away everything you have, including your body, avails nothing if it is not motivated by love.
You can say the same about prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude. These human virtues are expressions of love, and avail nothing, are not really virtuous, if they are not expressions of love. Same goes for the theological virtues – Paul said “Faith, hope and love remain, these three, but the greatest of these is love.” Why? Faith will give way to sight when we enter God’s presence. Hope will give way to reality. And that reality into which we will enter, in which we already begin to participate, is God, God Who is Love.
The virtues are love in action:
You could use his description of love in action as an examination of conscience. Love never fails, but we do. But this just means that we need to keep trying, practicing the virtues, getting better as we go, trusting not in our own efforts but in God’s help. And He gave us a lot of help. In fact, “God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son, So that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life.”

Language and Tone Statement
Please note the language and tone of this monitored Website. This is not the place to just stack up vulgar one-liners and crude rejoinders. While you may support, oppose or introduce any position or argument, submissions must meet our high Roman Catholic and Constitutional American standards of Truth, logical rigor and civil discourse. We will not participate in merely trading insults, nor will we tolerate participants merely trading insults. Participants should not be thin-skinned or over sensitive to criticism, but should be prepared to defend their arguments when challenged. If you don’t really have a coherent argument or counter-argument of your own, sit down and don’t embarrass yourself. Nonsensical, obscene, blindly & doggedly anti-Catholic, anti-American, immoral or merely insulting submissions will not be published here. If you have something serious to contribute to the conversation, be prepared to back it up, keep it clean, keep it civil, and it will be published. We humbly apologize to all religious conservative thinkers for the need to even say these things, but the Hard Left is what it always was, the New Leftist Liberals are what they are, and the Internet is what it is.
"Clickbait" advertising links are not acceptable for posting here.

Life itself demands passion.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
