How do I compare to Love?

The Cleveland chapter was blessed this month to be able to host Michael Guarino from YCP’s National Board. Michael took time out of his busy schedule to leave behind sunny Florida for Cleveland in January. He spent time with the group gathered talking about his work and his family and his faith. He had many stories and anecdotes, but the one that stuck out to me the most was when he asked how we “compare ourselves to Love.”

We are all familiar with the passage from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). It tells us what love is and is not. You know, it is patient and kind, not jealous, rude, or pompous. What Michael asked us was, what if you take out the word “love” and insert your name? Instead of “love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, is not inflated” can you put your own name where love is?

Does it sound like love?

“Just ask yourself, what would Jesus do? Does it sound like love?” 

The most recent Executive Speaker with YCP Cleveland’s series, Brian Lombardi, was a humbling experience. With Young Catholic Professionals series, those of us who have been lucky enough to attend, have gotten to know a little about each talented individual’s story. However, Lombardi hit me in a different way. 

There were a lot of practical tips and facts he shared with the listening audience. In fact, I’m hoping to incorporate a few of them into my daily life. Things such as praying at work, setting goals you can’t achieve without God, and seeking Jesus in others’ eyes. 

But for me, I’m a simple person. For me, it needs to be profound enough to challenge me and simple enough to remember easily.
