Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

For love

Go forth in peace, for you have followed the good road. Go forth without fear, for he who created you has made you holy, has always protected you, and loves you as a mother. Blessed be you, my God, for having created me. -- St. Clare of Assisi

O Jesus, it is not the heavenly reward you have promised which impels me to love you; 
neither is it the threat of hell that keep me from offending you.
It is you, O Lord, it is the sight of you affixed to the Cross and suffering insults;
 it is the sight of your broken body, as well as your pains and your death.
There is nothing you can give me to make me love you.
For even if there were no heaven and no hell I would still love you as I do.
Amen .

  1. That turned out lovely, Barbara! I had wanted to try and make one with our children, but I never did get to the store for grass seed. Maybe next year!

    I hope you are having a very Blessed Triduum!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
