Love's Weekend - Love's Life

Last weekend, was a weekend of love...
I reflected on Pope encyclical letter "DEUS CARITAS EST". I don't want to explain it here but I really recommend it to EVERYone. It contains a message much beyond any believing faith, about how we can understand the love, on its different acclivities, and how this love can be LIVEd on a truly human way.
"This transformation can be recognized and tested by anyone, independant of his faith, religion, and even else if doesn't praticise any religion"(2). For the unprejudice, courage and free minds, you can find it here. "I believe so very much. Because love is universal. I mean, you don't have to tell somebody that loving is better than hating"(3).
About a year ago, I reflected with my friends in our Group, on Desmond Tutu book "God has a Dream". It's funny and seriously amazing, one year after, feel how can be easy to turn real this dream in our lifes and how universal and practical could be this dream... "Love grows through love. Love is 'divine' because it comes from God and unites us to God; through this unifying process it makes us a 'we' which transcends our divisions and makes us one, until in the end God is 'all in all'."(1)
"We should learn to see with the eyes of the heart". "If we had eyes to see, we would look each other and see the God's beauty and we would call ones and others with the reverence and awe appropriated."(2). "Love is the light — and in the end, the only light — that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practise it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world"(1).
As long as we try to feel, to grow, to understand, to live with this "look of love", and see the humanity that flourish deeply inside of each Human Living Heart, we can enlight this world of such warm peace that we won't need to search for God anywhere... We will recognize Him all over His creation and beyond His grace we will
