Let us therefore love, because God first loved us.  – 1 Jn 4:19

Reflection.  If all the people of the world were symbolized by 100 people in one room, two-thirds would be poor.  Of the 66 poor people, about 35 would suffer from hunger and malnutrition, living in substandard housing or actually be homeless.  Only 50 out of 100 would be able to read and write, and only one out of 100 would have a college education.  If you really want to love God with all your heart, think of others.

Prayer.  Teach me to be sensitive to the needs of others, Lord, that I may experience the joy of loving You in each of them.
