CHURCHES... — a weekly message relating the world of today to the lessons of Faith and Church ... "Make /ove your aim, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy." A mother's love brings warmth and comfort to the heart of the child that is reaching out to grasp the realities of life. It is deep, and endless, protective, forgiving. Love, it has been said, is really the great need if we are to realize a better world. Some moderns seem to believe that it is old-fashioned to talk about love of country, and love of neighbor. Yes, even love of God. Do not believe that love is out-of-date. It is not. Do not think that love is a sign of weakness. It is not. Love is strength to conquer. Remembering that God is the center of all things, teach yourself to love—more and more.
