Homily from the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

The freedom to love when you no longer feel like it.

The precondition for love is freedom. Both the freedom to say no and the freedom to say yes, regardless of passing moods or circumstances. Tough love is willing to choose the good because God asked us to and because we said we would.
