Built up by their mutual love

February 17
Feast of the Seven Founders of the Order of Servites
“In the beginning our Lady was the chief architect of this new order which was founded on the humility of its members, built up by their mutual love, and preserved by their poverty.”
-Legenda de Origine of the Order of Servants of the Blessed Virgin Mary

With arms outstretched

February 16
“One of the favorite images I like to use for describing the Christian life is of a person standing with arms outstretched.  One hand, in faith and prayer, touches God; the other hand is extended in service to the neighbor.  Thus a person is cruciform, touching God and touching neighbor.”
–Catherine de Hueck Doherty

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
