Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin May 19, 2019

“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another." (John 13:34)  It is easy to love someone when they love you back. But it takes strength and courage to love someone when we feel unappreciated, used or feel our opinion doesn’t matter. It takes courage to “love my neighbor” when he may be someone I don’t like, someone I don’t know or someone that doesn’t look like me.
