Love

Wedding Bears

My nephew and his wife are in a nearby city making arrangements for his next military assignment. We had planned on meeting them and other family this evening at a park. Unfortunately, my mother is still not feeling well from her recently diagnosed diverticulitis – again. However, we were very happy that my nephew made […]

Divine Love Endures

I saw a quote today from Fr. John Waiss that touched my heart.“In heaven, we will see God face-to-face, with a love that’s deeper and greater in intensity than anything we have ever experienced before. Divine love is what endures.”I also heard that people are now so consumed with living a long time, we have […]

Change of Disposition

I visited a friend on Zoom tonight. She is going through a very hectic time right now as she is trying to get her house ready to sell. She’s also coordinating her move across the country. As she described the things she is struggling with, I could see the stress on her face. Then we […]

Six Words

During the Mass that we watched today, we heard a woman talk about her experience when she participated in “Alpha”, which is a way of bringing people together to talk about their Christian faith. She had an amazing story of how the group was exactly what she needed at that exact time. She was happy […]

One For All

The priest we listened to today started out by talking about the pandemic. He pointed out that virus does not discriminate. It will attack people of all ages, nationalities, races, colors, gender, financial state, social status, etc. We are all taking certain precautions such as wearing face masks, keeping distance, etc. to care for ourselves […]

Life for a Life

Today was the feast day for St. Maximilian Kolbe. I thought about how this priest sacrificed his life to spare that of another. That led me to think about those who are doing the same thing right now. Doctors and nurses are taking the necessary precautions as they treat people with coronavirus. There are thousands […]

Ocean of God’s Love

Yesterday, the church celebrated the feast day of Saint Jane Frances de Chantal, but I read about her today from the Diocese of Manchester site: She believed the secret of happiness was in “losing,” that we should “throw ourselves into God as a little drop of water into the sea, and lose ourselves indeed in […]

Champion for Life

Today I learned of the death of a woman who was the head of a pregnancy center in the town I used to live. I had met her a couple of times, particularly in working with the high school youth group. She made quite an impression on me as she was an incredible presence even […]

Labyrinth Goal

Last year I took an overnight retreat at a monastery located not too far from home tucked away in the woods. When I left, they said I was welcome to come any time to visit or walk the grounds. I had some time to myself today and decided to go there. A few months back […]

Highest Honors

I read a meme today that cut to my heart. It said, “To care for those who once cared for us is one of life’s highest honors.” Enough said. I Found God today in an inspiring quote.
