The ultimate Mystery of being, the ultimate Truth, is Love. This is the essential structure of reality. When Dante spoke of the ‘love which moves the sun and the other stars’, he was not using a metaphor, but was describing the nature of reality. There is in Being an infinite desire to give itself in love and this gift of Self in love is for ever answered by a return of love….and so the rhythm of the universe is created.
-Bede Griffiths, OSB
The day will come when after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
-Teilhard de Chardin
Happy Valentine’s Day dear friends and readers! -Christine
J, I just love St. Mary! :-) Love, C
I just got “Thirst” in the mail, and that is one of my new favorite poems. Tahnks for gifting it again…
Thanks Bette, why yes indeed I did. :-) Although I admit that I got the many colors from playing around with my Photoshop rather than actually doing multiple stamps in different colors.
I enjoyed these quotes and poem you given to us and being reminded just how powerful Love really is.
I’m going to guess that you have carved this pretty heart of many colors in your post!!
Thank you so much for all you do.
Prayers and Hugs,
Thanks Wendy and Shaula!
Shaula, what an incredibly kind and sweet thing to say. I am grateful!
Blessings and love, Christine
Happy Valentine’s Day! Thinking on your post about love I thought you should know that your writing always helps me love my Savior more. Thanks.
To you too Christine! : )
