Living on Love is sailing unceasingly, Sowing peace and joy in every heart. Beloved Pilot, Charity impels me, For I see you in my sister souls. Charity is my only star. In its brightness I sail straight ahead. I’ve my motto written on my sail: I live on love! –St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Living on Love is keeping within oneself A great treasure in an earthen vase. My Beloved my weakness is extreme. Ah, I’m far from being an angel from heaven! But if I fall with each passing hour, You come to my aid, lifting me up. At each moment you give me your grace: I live on Love. –St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Living on Love is banishing every fear, Every memory of past faults. I see no imprint of my sins. In a moment love has burned everything… Divine Flame, O very sweet Blaze! I make my home in your hearth. In your fire I gladly sing: “I live on Love!”
Living on Love is giving without limit Without claiming any wages here below. Ah! I give without counting, truly sure That when one loves, one does not keep count! Overflowing with tenderness, I have given everything, To his Divine Heart… lightly I run. I have nothing left but my only wealth: Living on Love.
Living on Love is not setting up one’s tent
At top of Tabor.
It’s climbing Calvary with Jesus,
It’s looking at the Cross as a treasure!
In Heaven I’m to live on joy.
Then trials will have fled forever,
But in exile, in suffering I want
To live on Love.
Living on Love is living on your life, Glorious King delight of the elect. You live for me, hidden in a host. I want to hide myself for you, O Jesus! Lovers must have solitude. A heart-to-heart lasting night and day. Just one glance of yours makes my beatitudes. I live on Love!
Living on love is holding You yourself. Uncreated Word, Word of my God, Ah! Divines Jesus, you know I love you.The Spirit of Love sets me aflame with his fire.In loving you I attract the Father. St. Therese
