Love is not just what we see in movies – it takes work, Pope Francis says
Rome, Italy, May 6, 2018 / 04:12 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Love is not empty words or what is depicted in romantic films – it is action and service toward others, Pope Francis said in a homily at a Roman parish Sunday.
“Love is not what they say in movies… Love is not playing violins, all romantic. No, love is work. Love shows itself in works, not in words,” he said at Santissimo Sacramento parish May 6.
Sometimes people might think that love is what they see between a couple in a film, but love is actually found in “always working for others,”
