For the love of God

February 15
“It is amusing to see souls who, while they are at prayer, fancy they are
willing to be despised and publicly insulted for the love of God, yet
afterward do all they can to hide their small defects; if anyone unjustly
accuses them of a fault, God deliver us from their outcries!”
-St. Teresa of Avila

Love is the key

February 14
“Love is the key to the mystery. Love by its very nature is not selfish, but
generous. It seeks not its own, but the good of others. The measure of love
is not the pleasure it gives – that is the way the world judges it – but the joy
and peace it can purchase for others.”
–Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

A word or a smile

February 9
“A word or a smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul.”
-St. Therese of Lisieux
Today’s Reflection:
What an impact we can have on another person! When you encounter others, how do you respond? Do you pretend to not see them? Or do you embrace them with the warmth of Christ’s love? Ask God to help you truly see others today.

If you want to bring happiness

February 8
“If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.”
 -St. Teresa of Calcutta
Today’s Reflection:
How often we forget how important it is to love those closest to us; the ones that can frequently be the hardest to love. Ask the Lord today to shine light on the areas within your family where you need to grow in greater love. Then, go home and love them!

Charity is the sweet and holy bond

February 7
“Charity is the sweet and holy bond which links the soul with its Creator: it binds God with man and man with God.”
-Saint Catherine of Siena
Today’s Reflection:
How beautiful! What a lovely reminder that we are linked with our Beloved. Knowing this, how can we show extra gratitude today to Him for His constant presence in our lives? How can we recognize Him wherever we go?

Our Lord loves you

February 6
“Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly; and if He does not let you feel the sweetness of His love, it is to make you more humble and abject in your own eyes.”
–St. Pio of Pietrelcino
Today’s Reflection:
What are your reactions to God’s love? Do you embrace it and accept it, regardless of whether you feel its sweetness? Or do you reject it when you do not feel its consolations? Spend some time letting God love you today, even if you do not feel it initially.
