We can learn to “love the brethren” when “we have come to know His love” (Epistle), in His Sacrament and Sacrifice of Love. This is the one true guarantee of unity amongst men. Then, and only then, will they recognize neighbor as “brother.”From My Sunday Missal, Confraternity of the Precious Blood, quote found at Catholic Culture.
May you have a blessed Solemnity of Corpus Christi, the Body and Blood of Christ. Peace be to you. God bless you!
