Unconditional Love

At the end of the movie “Dead Man Walking,” death row inmate Matthew Poncelet thanks Sr. Helen Prejean for simply “loving him.”

We live in a world that is obsessed with data and measurement from which we draw conclusions and notions about ourselves and others. Yet there are limits to all this.

God’s unconditional love has no such limits. It transcends data, measurement, quantification, and even our own imagination. It has no terms or conditions. Rather God’s love consists of ongoing mercy, compassion, humility, and service.

For us to share in God’s kingdom we have to get past “daily wages,” who earned what in comparison to who etc., and love unconditionally as Jesus taught us. Can we do this?

—Dr. Sajit U. Kabadi is a chair of the Theology Department at Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado.

St. Ignatius’s First Principle and Foundation says “The goal of our life is to live with God forever. God, who loves us, gave us life. Our own response of love allows God's life to flow into us without limit.” One of the ways in which we respond to the love God has given us is through prayer, not only personal prayer but community prayer as well. The Pastoral Ministry Center invites members of our Strake Jesuit Community to share their prayers with us: their concerns, joys, thanksgivings, so that we may walk with them in all these times of their lives.
