To be preferred

"Here on earth love proves itself by free choice.  When a man loves, he chooses that which he prefers.  Jesus wants to be chosen, to be preferred."

--Father Jean C. J. d'Elbee in I Believe in Love 


  1. I loved that book! Your picture here is heart breaking!

  2. Thank you, ladies. How can we ever love Our Lord enough?

  3. I love this picture. Sometimes when I meditate on the Rosary I just use pictures, especially if my mind is wondering. A picture like this helps me focus.

    To answer your question: I don't think we CAN ever love Our Lord enough :)

  4. Thank you, Mary, for your beautiful words. I'm so glad that you liked this; and as Anne wrote, the book from which this quote was taken is wonderful.
