By comparing love to everything from oxygen
and fire to wind and war, songs and poetry
emphasize its immense power — for good or
for ill. Christian author Patrick Morley uses
metaphors that focus on love’s practicality in
everyday life: “Love is the glue that holds us
together and the oil that keeps us from
rubbing each other the wrong way.” He also
calls love “the WD-40 of relationships”
because it “can seep into tight places where
logic, threats and even promises just can’t
seem to penetrate.”
St. Augustine, who predated WD-40 by
centuries, knew that love not only eases
friction in personal interactions but, with
Special dates God’s help, can change hearts and lives.
“Love all [people], even your enemies,” he
• African-American advises. “Love them, not because they are
History Month your brothers, but that they may become your
• Transfiguration Sunday, brothers. Thus you will ever burn with fraternal
February 14, 2021 love, both for him who is already your brother
• Valentine’s Day, and for your enemy, that he may by loving
February 14, 2021 become your brother.”

Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through

fellowship. He never deposits all knowledge in one person but distributes pieces
of the jigsaw puzzle to many. When you interlock your understanding with mine,
and we share our discoveries, when we mix, mingle, confess and pray, Christ
