The Wedding: Did he answer questions correctly?

On Saturday April 9th my little brother got married. What a beautiful celebration. Fr. Willie was great as always was able to speak to us as human equals. He comes fromĀ  a place of joy and happiness. His advice and homily are infused with everyday slang and humor.

Why is this important and what does this have to do with living a purpose filled life? Two things.

First lets relate it to marriage. Marriage is based on love but not a fluttery feeling. To quote Fr. Willie, “love is not a feeling it is a choice.”

Wow! Let me repeat that, “love is not a feeling it is a choice.”

If true love is a choice and that is what makes it so great think of how this affects your life.

– Do you love what you do?

– Do you love the activities you do throughout the week?

– Do you love where you live? Do you love the people you are with on a daily basis?

Chances are that you may have answered “NO” to most of these questions.

So here is where the choice comes in, either figure out how you can love in these situations or figure a what you need change in order to answer yes to the questions above.

Second, I want to speak about Fr. Willie. First of all he is not perfect just like all of us but what I love about him is how he live his soul purpose daily. He is a Jesuit Priest and the principle for Belen Jesuit in Miami. Every time I see him, every time I hear someone speak about him it is always the same. “he is so great.” “He is able to really relate and communicate with the kids.” “He is such a sincere person.”

When you are following your life’s passion, your soul purpose, these things are “easy” to achieve. You align with the best in yourself and with the best in others.

To conclude ask yourself the questions below and figure out how to make sure that you can answer an “Exciting YES” to each.

– Do you love what you do?

– Do you love the activities you do throughout the week?

– Do you love where you live? Do you love the people you are with on a daily basis?
