Commentary on the Gospel of
How do we measure the life of a man? When a man dies, what do we remember in him? Every memory that we hold on to are memories of experiences of love with that person: our experience of a loving mother, a caring father, a thoughtful brother or sister or friend. As one song repeatedly says, “How about love? Measure in Love!” How do we keep the memories of our departed loved ones alive in our life? Their legacies of love will forever be kept when we share this same experience of love to others. The only way to give justice to what they have left us is to keep the fire of love for our neighbors burning in our hearts. We celebrate not the death of people but their life lived in love.
