Can God Command Love??

Lenten Reflection #4
Remember when I said Pope Benedict XVI posed an interesting question of whether love can be commanded? It's in the bible, so it's true- God commands us to love him, and our neighbor. But when you think about, how can God or anyone just say: you must love me! If we ever heard anyone say that, we would probably laugh at them for saying such an impossible thing. Yet, I've never batted an eye when I've heard Jesus say it in the Gospel. Until now.

Sorry to leave you with this cliff hanger, but I have to attend to my other duties. I will resume this reflection tomorrow.
