It is possible to express your love for God by trying to love people around you. By doing something to help a person who cannot give you anything back, you ultimately doing this for God. In your loving approach, you are sharing God's love - which he gave you for free. 

John, Joan and Maria Clara did this each in their own way. What they have in common is their total dedication to God. In serving underprivileged people, they expressed their dedication to the Lord in a very concrete way. Like them, you are called to do this - in a way that corresponds with your own vocation. Ask God how you can share his love with other people while staying very close to who you are.
