Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

They have a Winner!

They have a winner over at
for the St. Valentine's Give-away..

Congratulations to Gardenia for being the winner...
Here is her favorite love quote...

1 Corinthians 13:

1 If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
2
And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.
3
If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4
3 Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated,
5
it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
6
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
7
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8
4 Love never fails.

gosh, thank you!! I don't usually win anything, and this is a delight for me, and for my daughter I'm sure who will wear the St. Therese bow with pride! Yes, that bible passage was the first reading at my wedding. I like the "love is patient, etc..." but I think the passage before that one (which you've re-quoted in your post, Cecilia) is as beautiful and meangful. and so we included that as well in the reading. thank you again. we are looking forward to seeing a little package in our mail box soon !
