Living on Love, when Jesus is sleeping.
Is rest on stormy seas.
Oh! Lord, don’t fear that I’ll wake you.
I’m waiting in peace in Heaven’s shore…
Faith will soon tear its veil.
My hope is to see you one day.
Charity swells and pushes my sail:
I live on Love!
–St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Reflection: Seeking comfort of the Lord in hard times leads you to a life of love.
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.
