Inspired by Catherine of Siena’s “Feed My Sheep”
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…
When Choosing Joy, Expect Miracles
“That your joy may be complete”
…inspired by the Swiss mystic poet Father Zundel…
Today, I woke up with an irresistible sense of happiness even though a spat with my beloved had tempered the joy of yesterday.
Einstein once said: “The man who has lost the faculty of being in wonder and struck with reverence is dead.”
This powerful thought propels me to share with you a joy which comes from writing:
WONDER – STIR ME UP!
THIS DAY FULL OF HORIZONS
FOR GOD AND LOVE – STAND

NOW, I LOVE TO WALK BAREFOOT ALL THE TIME!
