Reflection on Love
Thomas Merton in Thoughts in Solitude inspired me to quote him today as we all need to be rooted and grounded in Love. This is an excerpt from the Reflection for this day in "Give Us This Day", a daily prayer book containing not only prayers and the Mass for the day, but morning and evening Office, some reflections and short biographies.

Distress is to our advantage when we have nothing to seek by mercy..."
