Here’s a beautiful reflection from Dorothy Day on… my favorite, you guessed it: love.
“Love and ever more love is the only solution to every problem that comes up.
“If we love each other enough, we will bear with each other’s faults and burdens.
If we love enough, we are going to light a fire in the hearts of others.
And it is love that will burn out the sins and hatreds that sadden us. It is love that will make us want to do great things for each other. No sacrifice and no suffering will then seem too much.”
When we love someone enough, we make allowances for their differences, and even more, we can inspire one another to strive for greater holiness and to overcome sin.
Love, precisely, can be the catalyst for great change in our hearts and in our ways. I don’t think there is any other way of going about change…
And in marriage, love is the fuel for the life-long journey towards Heaven.
