The Quest for Perfect Love; John 15:12-13
The only way to eradicate all sin in our lives including not only venial sin but imperfections is by perfect love. God’s own Holy Spirit impels us to pour our hearts out in total self-gift to him. This is quite a challenge! We are weak and self-centered creatures. We are too calculating, afraid of giving too much, and so selfishness clips our wings and keeps us from reaching full union with God. The power to overcome ourselves comes from God. To reach perfect love, we have only to desire it and ask or beg for it.
