Let us love one another as God loves each one of us. And where does this love begin? In our own home. How does it begin? By praying together.
God told us, "love your neighbor as yourself." So first I am to love myself rightly, and then to love my neighbor like that. But how can I love myself unless I accept myself as God has made me?
CONTEMPLATIVES IN THE HEART
We are not social workers. We may be doing social work in the eyes of some people, but we must be contemplatives in the heart of the world.
We have to learn to pray the work. To do it with Jesus, for Jesus, to Jesus - then we are 24 hours with Him, and that makes us contemplative in the heart of the world.
CREATED TO LOVE
God has created us to love and to be loved, and this is the beginning of prayer--to know that He loves me, that I have been created for greater things.
God has created us in His image and likeness enabling us to know Him, love Him and serve Him in this world, so as to be happy with Him forever in the life to come. This is the true purpose of life. To live our lives with this aim, our lives have to be woven with prayer.
SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL FOR GOD
What I can do, you cannot. What you can do, I cannot. But together we can do something beautiful for God.
Yes, you must live life beautifully and not allow the spirit of the world that makes gods out of power, riches, and pleasure make you to forget that you have been created for greater things – to love and to be loved.
The child is God's gift to the family. Each child is created in the special image and likeness of God for greater things - to love and to be loved.
The family that prays together stays together, and if they stay together they will love one another as God has loved each one of them. And works of love are always works of peace.
Holiness is not the luxury of the few; it is a simple duty, for you and for me.
Be only all for Jesus through Mary. Be holy. God bless you!
