dc.description.abstractTHE POWER OF GOD'S LOVE IN US||In the United States our political season is upon us. We listen to politicians proclaim great words and promise great works. Who do you believe?|Jesus' words in John's gospel: 'whoever puts faith in me believes not so much in me As in him who sent me..."|Continue in John 14:22:|'anyone who loves me will be true to my word...and My Father will love him/her.|We will come to him/her and make our dwelling place with him/her." When we believe deeply the words and works of Jesus, others can see us living them.|God's love is visible in our loving acts.|Last year I was privileged to visit Creighton's health care program in the Dominican Republic, ILAC (the Institute of Latin American Concern). Our Physical Therapy students were there doing a clinical rotation. They were working with Dominicanos in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics for adults and for children and in the campos, the rural villages. There was not a lot of medical equipment available. I saw a student make a splint out of virtually nothing, create exercise equipment from balls, slinkys, etc. One student found ortho shoes for a child who needed them. They used dance as an exercise medium for older adults. They even learned some "hot" Latin dances. I was amazed at their skills of adaptability that were born out of love, the love of the people they were serving. You could see it in their sparkling eyes.|Mother Teresa was well known as a holy woman. What made her holy in our eyes? She had a deep respect for the human person. You could see this in the gentle way she treated the dying.|Each of these people love God and show it by their love of others. We are each loved greatly; God "dwells in us". God's love is not meant for us alone; we must give it away.|Do small things today and for many tomorrows, with a generous heart.|Give God Away Today!en_US
