Fruit of Love

Love is helping the poor 
and blessing our greatest enemy 
because they are our brothers, 
and that is the only way 
to please God.

It is time to think of Jesus.
Bouasse Lebel, Pl.1411

And a wonderful way to "wake up and think of Jesus" during the Lenten season is to visit  ENLARGING THE HEART ~ Mark Armitage's gracious offering of devotional readings from the early fathers and the saints.

Holy guardian angels,
watch over us as our
Lenten journey begins...

1 John 4:16

Sts. Cyril and Methodius: Feast Day, February 14

By you O Mother and Virgin, heaven trembles with elation and the angels and the archangels rejoice. ~St Cyril
Sts. Cyril and Methodius, Co- Patrons (with St Benedict, St Edith Stein, and St Bridget of Sweden) of Europe
"...the funeral Mass was held in all three liturgical languages: Latin, Greek, and Slavonic.  Rivers of faithful who had received Christ through the achievements of these two missionaries flowed for days as they paid their respects after the funeral.Their lives are a testimony of love, pure and simple.  They loved their God and the souls they served more than themselves, and so they gave their lives in honor of that love.  Such is the perfect valentine, if you ask me.  So I say again what I already said, and I mean it: have a very happy Valentine’s Day, today and every day.

Once opened the door softly.

Here you will find peace and rest.
