AS I HAVE LOVED YOU

JUNE 16 – 18, 2021 | ZOOM

Due to COVID19, the 2021 Summer Conference took place virtually on Zoom.


“As I have loved you, so you also must love one another.” John 13:34

The heart of the Gospel is love. In the words of Pope Benedict XVI, “Since God has first loved us (1 Jn 4:10), love is now no longer a mere “command”; it is the response to the gift of love with which God draws near to us.” As Christians, how do we manifest the love of God in our lives? What does it mean, for instance, “to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt 22:39), or to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matt 5:44)? How does the sacramental life cultivate within us the desire to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matt 22:37)? How do we infuse Christian love into our culture through our politics, work, technology, education, medicine? How does love of the poor bring us closer to Christ?

Join us as we seek answers to these questions at the heart of the Christian life, so that together we might “run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love” (RB Prol. 49).
