In today’s Regina Coeli, Pope Francis called the love of Christ ‘a fundamental attitude of the heart.’ We might ask ourselves then: ‘What is the attitude of my heart today?’, while remembering: LOVE shows no partiality.  
We must serveto the endlive the truthand rout them all by friendshipTo win the human heartthere is onlyLOVE.(C. Lebreton)
Love, it is you who reveal to me that other cheek—my best profile—the one that belongs to eternity, and it will be the only one without any possible duplicity or ambivalence. The other cheek: my profile of hope.May I contemplate it in every man and woman.It is yourself on the face of every living person.It is the other check that a kiss reveals,my face of lightthat your gaze illumines.(C. Lebreton, Born from the Gaze of God, p. 177)
