His own love

For the victims of love, it seems to me that there will be no judgment, but rather that God will hasten to reward with eternal delights His own love, which He will see burning in their hearts.
--Saint Therese of Lisieux


  1. Beautiful, as always. Her use of the word 'victim' is fascinating. Willing victims of the fire of His love.

    God bless you!

  2. Kindred Spirit, I must say, today I especially appreciate the good and beauty that you bring to the internet. It is distressing to see some of the topics that even Catholic sites feel free to comment on, and equally as distressing to see the negativity and nastiness and judgment posted in comments on all sorts of topics. What you offer is in accord with the teaching of Saint Paul: to think and speak of what is good and beautiful and supportive of faith. I thank you for this refuge in the ether.

    "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: the woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands: and let her works praise her in the gates."

    God bless you, Robert

  3. Thank you very much, Clare and Robert, for your very nice comments. Your words are such a joy to read, and I am most grateful that you took the time to write. May Almighty God richly bless you and your dear ones.
