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!”
–St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Reflection: Jesus has unending mercy. You too must live a mercy-filled life and forgive your fellow brothers and sisters.
St. Therese was an avid writer and wrote many poems in her short life. One of her most well-known is “Living on love” that shares how to live fully steeped in God’s Love. As we prepare to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day, we want to share HIS love with our friends and family. You can join us in this celebration!
In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, we will focus on different aspects of this well-known poem and invite you to join us as well. Please check into our social media and if you want to share your own thoughts, use the hashtag #livingonlove.
