How and why do we love? Whom do we love? Today’s reading from the First Epistle of John gives us an answer, “We love because he loved us first.” It’s a love that must be shared between ourselves and those around us and above all else, God. We must celebrate this love everyday by caring for those around us, especially those who God loves preferentially. We must emulate Christ’s ministry of bringing good news to the poor, as recalled in today’s reading from Luke. God so loved the world that he sent his son to heal the blind, release the captive and “let the oppressed go free.” It is through God’s love for us that we ourselves are able to love. We must in turn share this love with our friends and family as well as the prisoner, the poor, and the blind.
