it brings us together and makes us one.
Love calls us individually to relationship,
yet its very nature has no boundaries;
its desire is to be shared with others.
Love flows from the heart...
this same love flows from each of us because God's Spirit of abundant love flows through our hearts. ~Henri Nouwen
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?"
He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22: 36-39
"Dear children; With motherly love I desire to open the heart of each of you and to teach you personal unity with the Father. To accept this, you must comprehend that you are important to God and that He is calling you individually. You must comprehend that your prayer is a conversation of a child with the Father; that love is the way by which you must set out - love for God and for your neighbour. That is, my children, the love that has no boundaries, that is the love that emanates from truth and goes to the end. Follow me, my children, so that also others, in recognizing the truth and love in you, may follow you. Thank you."
Once again Our Lady called us to pray for our shepherds (priests) and said: "They have a special place in my heart. They represent my Son." BVM, April 02, 2011 Message to Mirjana , Medjugorje
This season of Lent calls us to reconciliation with God, with others and with ourselves. Reconcilation can only come to a heart that is open. May our hearts be open.
