“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.
My weak heart holds him forever.
O Trinity! You are Prisoner
Of my Love!”
–St. Therese of Lisieux, Living on Love
Reflection: Living on love means to let the Holy Spirit set you aflame with the love of God.
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.
