Advent Word, Day 2 ‘love’

Day 2 #love #愛 Monday November 28

‘Falling in love is one of the most profoundly spiritual experiences a person can have. By falling in love we discover our capacity for selflessness. We experience what it means to entrust ourselves, our souls and bodies, to another. When we fall in love as God does, we too will ultimately “stretch out [our] arms of love on the hard wood of the cross,” just as Jesus did’.

「戀愛」(墜入情網)可能是一個人最深刻的心靈體會。透過戀愛,我們發現自己擁有一種無私、忘我的精神:在身、心各方面,都把自己交託給對方。當我們能像「神愛世人」那樣,墜入「愛」中,我們就能效法耶穌,「在無情的十字架上,張開愛的雙手」。
