Love is a Verb: An Ignatian Reflection for Valentine’s Day

Joan of Arc Chapel

As St. Ignatius said, “Love ought to show itself in deeds more than words.”

St. Ignatius’ sense of “love as a verb” helps us to orient ourselves deeper to the needs and longings of others. While this concept of loving well can be much more challenging in day-to-day living than perhaps “thinking” about or “intending” to love well may be, I have come to observe and believe that we are wired in our bodies, our hearts and our minds for just such considered action.
