“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.” ~ Dorothy Day
The worse illness of our time, is that so many people have to suffer from never being loved
We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
Today’s Quote by St. Theresa of Calcutta on Love
There is a terrible hunger for love.
We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness.
We must have the courage to recognize it.
The poor you may have right in your own family.
