What does love look like…

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like.”

– St. Augustine


(a lone gull bears up under the cold storms of January / Julie Cook / 2019)

“Not to try to live in interior silence is equivalent to giving up the effort to lead a
truly Christian life.
The Christian life is a life of faith, lived in the invisible for what is invisible.
Anyone who is not in constant contact with the invisible world runs the risk of remaining always
on the threshold of a true Christian life…
Solitude is the stronghold of the strong.
Strength is an active virtue, and our power of keeping silence marks the level of our capacity for action.
‘Without this interior cell, we would be incapable of doing great things,
either for ourselves or for others.'”

Raoul Plus, S.J., p. 40-1
