I bless God for you Fr. Baron! I am learning so much and encouraged to read and study the scriptures more; pray more and draw closer to my God who is Love; walk humbly with my God; and participate in the new Evangelism.

Excellent!!! I gave this chapter to a loved one who is going through some life changes. We are in the image of God, so we must Love as He loves us, with inconditional love.

Cannot be any lower than a perfect rating! The truth is hard and this homily speaks openly and clearly of behaviors and actions which may disguise as love.

Love hopes all things which also means to long for with expectation or obtainment. This seems to mean that we are not to accept the status quo when regulations and/or laws do not adhere to helping the virtuous to 'be their brothers keepers' so that all can assist in obtaining justice for the unborn or the downtrodden. Hope can bring change for the good to help our world 'rejoice in the truth.' JPII may have had no choice in enduring the Nazis. Nevertheless, he did not give up on love for his brothers by fighting against evil through love. It is love which is the 'trajectory' of justice!!!! When speaking of this passage, one should also point out that love can require action in our own little corners of the world because if one says 'love puts up with all things' without taking into account the power of hope to establish change for the good, one may be mislead into believing they can be passive all the time.

Great talk. A spin-off of it is "Do no harm" the inspiration of medical doctors. I believe this passage should be their credo. One thing, most preachers, you are one, neglect to mention Jesus by name, if you mention Him at all. Why is this?

Best ever! I listen to Fr. Barron every week. This sermon about LOVE is one of "the classics" from his collection of great sermons.

To know that GOD IS LOVE is to know that without GOD I have no love. The love I give to others is the work of GOD not my own. LOVE IS NOT ABOUT ME, IT IS ABOUT HIM.

Fr.Barron you are a great blessing. We need more faith filled priest like you. My one prayer is that all our priest will be set on fire with Love for the Eucharist. My New year's resolution is to sit at the feet of Jesus in front of the Blessed S'ment on a daily basis before Mass begins. With the intention of learning from him as to how I can Love and Honour the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ my God and Saviour more and more. I only wish that all priest will at least mention once during mass re the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. God Bless your ministry. I do pray for you daily since your words come to my mind when I sit at the feet of Jesus. Thanks and sorry for any mistakes since I am not a highly educated person. Thanks. Marion Hettiarachchi.

I truly think this kind of Love is seldom seen in any child of God's life on a consistent basis. For me it is a picture of the Love that God showed us in His beloved Son,Jesus, and only as I am "wrapped up in Him" can I ever hope to love in this way in a consistent fashion. Praise be to God for His faithful Love to me.
