Fr. Jeremiah Shryock, CFR, gives a homily to the nuns of the monastery of Bethlehem in Livingston Manor, New York, where he serves as chaplain.  “Love,” he says, “if it is to be sincere and authentic, always costs something.”  He points out that “Jesus’ wounds are the visible sign of his total gift of self” and that even after the Resurrection, the marks of the Passion remain as an eternal reminder that “He is always our sacrificial victim.”  Will we accept God’s love as the sincere and authentic and utterly unselfish gift that it is?
