Lost the love

Today, as the liturgical year begins to wind down to its end, we begin reading from the book of Revelation: the last book of the Bible, well-known for its vivid depictions of the end of all earthly things.

The selection with which we begin, however, (Revelation 1:1-4; 2:1-5) is a love letter: written to people who loved Jesus nearly two thousand years ago and to us today as well.

“To the angel of the Church in Ephesus, write this....

...you have lost the love you had at first.

Realize how far you have fallen.

Repent, and do the works you did at first.”
