God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened until you; For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
A new commandment I give unto you: that ye love one another as I have loved you.
Ma vocation enfin je l’ai trouvée, ma vocation c’est l’Amour! (I have found my vocation at last. My vocation is love!)
Thérèse of Lisieux
It’s as simple—and as difficult—as that!
Edith Piaf, the great diva of love, had a lifelong devotion to Thérèse of Lisieux—very much the saint of love—who is said to have promised, on her deathbed at the age of 24, that she would let fall a shower of rose petals from heaven after she died. Her imagery was drawn from the Feast of Corpus Christi, her favourite as a child.
