Why do we “have” to love God?
It seems very self-centered of God to demand our love. But is it? Today Fr. Mike opens up the first sentence of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and helps us to understand more fully why God, who was never lonely in Heaven, chose to freely create us to be in relationship with Him.
