Knowing how to love is never something acquired once and for all. We must begin anew every day. We must practice it so that our love for the brothers and sisters we encounter may become mature and free from limitations or sins that render it incomplete, egotistical, sterile, or unfaithful. Listen to this: we must patiently follow the school of Christ every day. We must forgive and look to Jesus with the help of our “advocate,” the Holy Spirit. We must learn the art of loving every day.
