VIRTUOUS LOVE

Siena Italy

Inspired by Catherine of Siena’s “Feed My Sheep”

HAIBUN

Pray Tell – Where is Virtuous Love?

Saint Catherine of Siena responds “in our neighbors.”  How so?  She confirms “because I can’t show my Creator my love for Him directly, so I have to use my neighbors and do for them the service I cannot do for God.”

What a powerful perspective to inflame the mind!

TO LOVE FRIENDS AND FOES

TO SEE EVERYONE AS OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS

…in so doing, we find virtuous love…

…Vera, this one is for you…
