  1. I think simply, as the Catholic Catechism says, lift my mind and heart to God and doing our best to follow His will.

    To love God I need to love others as they are apart of him. Sometimes that is hard.

  3. Very interesting. It makes me think of the seven Celtic things you posted about – when I love God I have hope, and having hope is (in some situations) a way to love God. When I love all people equally, I love God. When I consider God’s mystery through prayer or contemplation, I love God. When I take care of the earth and act with care in my day to day living, I am loving God because I am honouring the uniqueness of His creation. When I realise that God is not far away just because I stepped outside of church, or because I’m sorting laundry… you get the idea 🙂

    This reminds me of a poem I wrote last year. I’ll dig it out and post it on my blog. I wondered when it might be the right time to share it. Thanks – always interesting and always thought-provoking.
