Taking Time to Love

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

It was a small town in the Saar Province of Germany. An old lady was making her way carefully along the street, came to the zebra stripe crossing for pedestrians and then stood there at the curb. A gigantic truck screeched to stop to let her cross the street. The truck driver waved the lady across the street. But the lady waved back to the truck driver and said, “Thanks. It’s very kind of you. But I’ve got lots of time. No hurry.” The truck driver went ahead a bit, and pulled over to the side of the road, got out, and walked to the lady, and gave his hand and said, “I just wanted to have a good close look at a person who has time in this day and age.” He greeted her and returned to his twelve-wheeler.

   In the fast moving world, how do we share the love with each other. We check the emails, text message, face-book, tweeters, etc. immediately, even if we are driving. We like to respond right away. We do this mostly with the people who are NOT with us. How much time do we take to hold each others hands and sit together and look into each other’s eyes? It is not enough to take time for everybody else in the world and not spend quality time with each other in our homes. Love begins from home and grow out to others. This needs to be done not by words alone but in action.   

  The world is filled with too many of us who are inclined to indicate our love with an announcement or  declaration. True love is a process. True love requires personal action. Love must be continuing to be real. Love takes time. If you do not take time now, your loved ones might not have time when you need them. Therefore, please take time to love your family and children and see the love growing.    

 

 

       

 

With Prayers and Blessings!                                                                                          

 Msgr. Xavier
