Deus caritas est

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us (1 John 4:16-19 ESV)
Something to keep in mind as we begin today, especially in light of what we did yesterday, striving to do all the life stuff we were dismissed to go do at the end of Mass, making Christ present because He is now in us. To be living proofs of His real presence.
