GOD'S WILL


 


LOVE IS NOT FEELING

The world is getting more and more emotional, i.e. it is losing its backbone. Even love is seen as nothing but a passing emotional fancy.


For us, Catholics, love is not a feeling but an act of the free will. It is joining our will to God's will. It means consent to whatever God's will commands.

 

It means doing everything for only one reason, because it is God's will. If emotions and feelings accompany the acts of the will, that's normal. But it is the free will that should dominate and not the emotions.

 

St. Aelred of Rievaulx
