Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
St. Francis of Assisi

There is no place for selfishness, and no place for fear!
Do not be afraid, then, when love makes demands.
Do not be afraid when love requires sacrifice.
Pope John Paul II

Truly we are going to need it to love to be treated as He was! Strength and love!

Rather than silence an ambiguity!

God is Love, we eventually have to ask ourselves the question: Why was Love nailed to a cross?

 When our hands have touched spices, they give fragrance to all they handle. Let us make our prayers pass through the hands of the Blessed Virgin. She will make them fragrant.

I will go peaceably and firmly to the Catholic Church: for if faith is so important to our salvation,
I will seek it where true faith first began, seek it among those who received it from God Himself.

'Yesterday, our old St. Francis of Assisi was more poetical than ever, in the midst of his tears and of his bursts of love. Speaking of the soul of man, which ought to aspire to God alone, he cried out, "Does the fish seek the trees and the fields? No; it darts through the water. Does the bird remain on the earth? No; it flies in the air. . . And man, who is created to love God, to possess God, to contain God, what will he do with all the powers that have been given to him for that end?"'

I just wish there was some way to shake this concept in to people!  The absurdity of a person's decision to commit sin is about the same as if a fish were to try to "free itself" by jumping onto a river bed...

I really like this quote. Sometimes free will can be daunting, especially when temptation is involved (Romans 7:13-25). Praise God for our beloved Savior. Being a husband and a father of 4 and a grandfather of 4, there have been many occasions when I've had to explain to them how much I loved them, but, I loved God more and nothing could change that ( so hard to explain), my wife has accepted that, the others have found it challenging.
My grandchildren seem to grasp it better than their parents, there is nothing that can bring greater joy( that I have found) than calling out to God and feeling the warmth of his healing love fill my soul, and yes it is frustrating when you want so bad for those you love to share this incredible gift with you, this grace, and it seems they Can't or won't, so I pray for them, and because I love them so, I"ll never stop.
