This lesson reminded me of Fr Richard Rohr's dictum, "Your life is not about you." I've wrestled with that since I first heard it, but this lesson has helped me come to grips with it. The "meaning of life" as Viktor Frankel tells us, is to live in the service of others. He was late in saying that, as Jesus said in 1900 years before, but I realize now how true it is. Joy, peace, happiness derive from loving others, even when that love is unrequited...but it sure is tough, isn't it? So to do it, I must make the right decision, one choice at a time.

I found the review of the commandments to be enlightening....the depth of each as stated in the CCC is helpful. Self -defense must occur, and some personalities are damaged and unable to defend, thus the need for advocates. the competitive nature of Non believers is very difficult to face....thus the words from St. Theresa "love one tiny thing at a time....give as you can and trust in the Lord.
Very good lessons. I am praying more continuously throughout the day. The "crisis" the USA is living through has slowed my pace and my thoughts....I am closer to God and mentally healthier

What I learned and have decided to incorporate is praying and asking Jesus to show me how to love others in action.

This was a challenging lesson for me. I enjoyed reading through the catechism lessons on each of the commandments but when I got to "Love of neighbor is a litmus test of how much we actually do love God." I stopped short. Loving everyone is a very challenging idea because some people just aren't very lovable and it is hard to see Christ in them. and then this quote "We are to treat others with love even when we are not loved in return". Sometimes its hard just to be polite let alone treat others with love. It's easy to sit back in church and pray and love God after all God is so lovable but when we step outside the church and face rude, angry, violent people who don't want to be loved, it is very difficult. It takes heroic virtue that only God can give.
