Discernment in progress..

God's love..

World's love..

Any doubts ? If I may be so bold as to critique TRUE's version of love:

Yes, Love is awesome, you should read the latest papal encyclical. It may help you clear up the misconceptions you have about love.

Yes, she is awesome, but not in the manner you're suggesting. God made her, and loves her as a unique creature with talents that are ignored in your rush to market her as a commodity.

No, I doubt that clicking your link is going to help anyone find love. Prayer is the way to get that.

Your name, 'TRUE', belies your purpose. For truth in advertising, try 'ILLUSION'.

Relative easy for us believers to discern, but not easy for the world. They have no vision of it and the Eucharist to them is absolutely meaningless. Jesus Christ to them is a swear expression.

The world thinks love is all about hormones and how to excite them to extremes.

So how best to explain it to them, especially when two generations have grown up with the barest minimum of Christian teachings? We've come almost full circle, right back to pagan times again. Somehow the vision of who and what Love is needs to be rekindled.

Hit the Nail on the head Jimbob and scribe!

Talk to any college student (since our age group is the one the free love culture targets the most) and deep down they probably feel pretty empty and lousy about things.

Girls who are virgins usually have to deal with other girls saying "SO YOU THINK YOUR BETTER THAN ME? STOP JUDGING ME!" But deep down there are probably saying "I wish I was like that."

I had rather a revelatory experience five or six years ago. I visited some undergraduates at Cacciaguida's and my old college, and found them in the midst of an argument about whether you would still love your mother if you found out she was, and had always been, a robot. The question turned, of course, to what love is. The only other serious Catholic and I, who had not previously met, surprised the others by replying in unison, "It's to desire the other's good." It seemed quite odd to them that we said exactly the same thing. The general opinion was that you would still love your mother, even though she was a robot, because she would, presumably, still be cooking your meals and doing your laundry - in short, she would continue to minister to your appetites.
