Dying of Love is what I hope for.
When I shall see my bonds broken,
My God will be my Great Reward.
I don’t desire to possess other goods.
I want to be set on fire with his Love.
I want to see Him, to unite myself to Him forever.
That is my Heaven… that is my destiny:
Living on Love!!!
–St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Reflection: The goal of living your life dedicated to sharing God’s love is for Heaven. By imitating his love, you will be working toward this destiny.l.
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.
