Happy Valentine (to those chooses to celebrate)

what’s the meaning of Valentine’s day in today’s world?

As far as i am concerned … it has to do with something that is so generously (or overused) term : LOVE.

It’s  interesting to hear the elaboration of St. Thomas Aquinas’ description of LOVE : “the effective willing of the good of the other”

Fr._Michael_Himes_on_Love

Some of the point …Love is first of all, a Choice, an act of the will …

Love is not a feeling, it’s something that we do :)

Love is first and foremost, for the good of other.

In other word : love is choosing to do for the best for the other person, and acting to make that real for them.

St. Ignatius also tells us, “Love is shown more in deeds than in words”

Have a lovely Valentine …
