I love you my brother

Last weekend, I went to the funeral for a wonderful priest who was filled with love for his fellow man.  In the remembrances that followed the ceremony, I kept hearing about love.  How wonderful!
A popular song from the 60s by Hal David and Burt Bacharach says "What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It's the only thing that there's just too little of."  How very true that statement is.  Can there ever be enough love?
One of the mourners present last Saturday, spoke of how that priest would always say "I love you my brother."  Another person remembered the same thing and they both were just delighted about this.  "I love you my brother."  A simple expression like that the warms your heart and makes you feel special. 
Thank you Father Jim.  I love you my brother.  How wonderful it is to be loved.  How wonderful it is to tell someone.
