Love is an Ability

It’s more universal than anything, yet not everyone has the same idea of what love is exactly. In this video, Father Mike Schmitz makes a good case for why love is not a feeling but an ability. Just like any other skill, we need to learn how to do it. Simply being passionate and having strong feelings for a person is part of it, but will these emotions alone pass the test when love calls us to be selfless or to sacrifice for the one we love? Father Mike challenges us to “will the best for our beloved.” Doing this will lead us deeper into the beautiful mystery that love is.
