now that we've found love


"now that we found love
what are we gonna do
what are we gonna do with it
now that we found love what are we gonna do" (Heavy D + The Boyz - Now that We've Found Love, 1991)

this past weekend someone was talking to someone who was talking to someone else who was talking to another person who was trying to get my attention. anywho, after mass there is a lot of people talking, you get the idea. at one point i over heard someone say, "oh, this is Fr. Jonathan, he has been ordained for a year." i interjected right away with, "excuse me, that's a year and a half!" don't forget the half - it makes all the difference. good times. i remember saying half when i was turning 1, 2, 3, 20, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34 ... anywho, it fit in to the conversation at the time.

after having found what i'm looking for, talking about the one i love, this Heavy D ditty fits in nicely. indeed, now that God in Our Lord Jesus Christ has chosen us, and that we've chosen Him, what do we do? there's an intercession that we pray in the French breviary that i particular enjoy. "those who seek God, may find Him; and those who have found Him, may continue to search for Him." - a slight paraphrase, but it always hits home with me. we must continue to know Him better, love Him more and follow Him more closely each and every day. indeed, the first paragraph of the Catechism of the Catholic Church hits it on the nail: "the life of man is to know God." get busy living, or get busy dying. peace.
