The Lord Jesus was an example of practical love, suffering for us and carrying our pains as the Holy Bible says: Bear one another s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2) As Christ bore our burdens, so we are committed to this approach to bear the burdens of one another.
Thus, Father John Nassif, priest of the Church of Our Lady of Chicago, told us in his article, Remember the prisoners that Brotherly love begins with the feeling of one another as members of one body. Losing one s love will lead to lack of feeling for one another. We should get in touch with people suffering like those in prison or hospitals. The prisoners are not only those who are in actual prisons, but those who are trapped in their sins and bad habits. We should seek their salvation, just like ours, like Jesus Christ showed us.
Brotherly love requires self-sufficiency and the breaking of selfishness, as the Bible has commanded us: Do not consider each one what is for himself, but every one is what is also for others. We must realize that the body is weak and we should use grace and strength greater to us from God . Giving and helping others gives great pleasure and relief from heavy burdens and pains.
