Navigating the little way...



Third day of the novena...
.
"Poverty, austerity, fasting, prayer, the gift of miracles, without love of our brothers, all are pure illusion.  To love Jesus without loving those whom he loved to death is not to love him.  There is no true love of neighbor without beginning by loving Jesus; but the love of Jesus is accomplished, perfected, consummated, in the love of neighbor.  'Jesus meek and humble of heart, give me your heart to love my neighbor.'  Have no doubt that it is in the degree to which you change yourself that everything around you will change." - I Believe in Love - Pere jean du Coeur de Jesus D'Elbee

"If any man says: I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar." - 1 Jn 4:20
