To me Hallel and John go together hand in hand down the narrow path carrying/dragging their most Cherished Cross and following Jesus! Why? They are my two youngest children, bound together by all the losses that surrounded them... two between them including the one I lost when my sister, Mary, died and 3 after John including 2 boys which I carried 5 months each and are buried at the foot of Pat's mothers and father's graves.
--Pope John Paul II
A life of love requires that we pour ourselves out.
That we deny ourselves again and again.
Love, as JPII says, is demanding. It is demanding in the big ways and the little ways.
But love is our vocation. And it is only when we pour ourselves out that God is able to fill us up again.
Nancy and JPII's message for today! So good! LOVE it!
