Everyone needs law of God which is law of love, Madrid cardinal says

.- The Archbishop of Madrid and president of the Bishops’ Conference of Spain, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, said during his Sunday reflection that faced with the current economic and social crises in Spain, everyone needs to live according to the law of God which is the law of love.

During his reflection the cardinal explained that the response of each person to the current crisis needs to be born “of faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God” and of “the law of love, the true law of all laws!”

Likewise, he said, all men and women “need the law of God, written in the deepest part of their beings and revealed and empowered in all of its fullness by His Word: the Word made flesh in Jesus Christ. And the law of God is the law of love.”

“There is no other light or power for facing the immediate future with an alert and serene spirit and a heart enlightened by hope, which gives strength and enthusiasm, than that of renewing our yes to the law of the love of God, presented and explained with passionate newness by the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ,” he stated.

Cardinal Rouco went on to note that the response to the crisis in education is also found in “embracing Christ and his victorious Cross!” Such a response is urgently needed as the new school year begins, he said, in order to have the courage and decisiveness to overcome every difficulty.

“The lesson of love is definitively learned in the Risen Christ,” the cardinal said.
