A love to see anew

November 8, 2011

True love is delicate and kind, full of gentle perception and understanding, full of beauty and grace, full of joy unutterable. There should be some flavor of this in all our love for others. We are all one. We are one flesh in the Mystical Body as man and woman are said to be one flesh in marriage. With such a love one would see all things new; we would begin to see people as they really are, as God sees them.

– Dorothy Day (1897-1980), American journalist and social activist

    I love this! Wish that it could be so in all the world. Too many times we forget we are all children of God-brothers and sisters.
    May God always bless you,Shawn, for these daily blessings. I enjoy each one.
