Father Joseph Illo, pastor of Star of the Sea church in San Francisco, gave a 13-minute homily on Sunday, May 15 on the subject of love.
Father Illo began by noting that May and June are months of love. He cited the popular signs saying Love Is Love. “What does that mean? It is what we call circular reasoning.”
“Love is God, Who knows God knows love. Love is, in the words of St. Thomas, willing the good of another. Who does that better than God?”
Another observation: “Sometime love hurts. Sometimes the lover needs to tell the beloved something that hurts. ‘You’re drinking too much’ is a statement of love.”
