love

A Quote by Saint Innocent Apostle to America on god, christianity, love, suffering, mercy, gratitude, virtue, sin, good, thanksgiving, and debt

For whom did Jesus suffer?  For all sinners, from Adam till the end of the world.  He suffered also for those very men who tortured Him, and for His enemies who had delivered Him to that torture, and for those who, having received from Him countless benefits, not only did not thank Him but even hated and persecuted Him.  He also suffered for all of us who offend Him daily by our untruths, wickedness, and terrible indifference to His suffering for us who by our ingratitude and abominable sins, as it were, crucify Him a second time.

A Quote by Henri Nouwen on love, bodies, unity, and touch

Your body needs to be held and to hold, to be touched and to touch. None of these needs is to be despised, denied, or repressed. But you have to keep searching for your body's deeper need, the need for genuine love. Every time you are able to go beyond the body's superficial desires for love, you are bringing your body home and moving toward integration and unity.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on love and pain

in

We are pain and what cures pain, both. We are the sweet cold water and the jar that pours. I want to hold you close like a lute, so that we can cry out with loving. Would you rather throw stones at a mirror? I am your mirror and here are the stones.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

The desire to force love to live only in its most positive form is what
causes love ultimately to fall over dead.

A Quote by James Hillman on love, relationships, imagination, and boredom

For a relationship to stay alive, love alone is not enough. Without
imagination, love stales into sentiment, duty, boredom. Relationships fail not because we have stopped loving but because we first stopped imagining.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on love, creativity, and creation

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.

The greatest life one can have is of service. Give joy, happiness, bliss, laughter, wisdom, prosperity, love & light to others. By doing so, you tap into the Infinite Source within ensuring that you will never have to do without these "treasures" yourself!

A Quote by St. Nicolai Vilimirovich on god, gratitude, sacrifice, spirituality, poetry, thanksgiving, debts, service, giving, and love

Render sacrifice to God; a sacrifice of gratitude,
O you wealthy ones; according to God's mercy!
Who is wealthy and with what; with that let him barter,
Everyone with his gift; let him, the Kingdom acquire.
Whoever is wealthy with money; let him money, offer,
Whoever is rich with wheat; wheat let him distribute,
To whom wisdom is given; others, let him teach,
To him whose hands are strong; let him perform service.
Whoever knows a trade; let him honorably uphold it,
Let him conscientiously consider himself as a debtor of God.
Let him, who knows how to sing; praise God,
Only he is small, who does not know God.
Whoever received what; with that let him serve,
With mercy toward men; let him repay God,
Not all are the same, nor do all possess the same,
But a pure heart, everyone could give to God.
O pureness of heart, a sacrifice most miraculous,
For salvation, you are the crucial virtue,
And on your sacrificial altar, your incense ascends,
Arrives before the Lord, faster than anything.

Nicolai Vilimirovich

A Quote by Saitn Elizabeth the New Martyr on god, love, nieghbors, fire, cultivation, growth, peace, spirituality, souls, and spirit

It is easier for feeble straw to resist a mighty fire than for the nature of sin to resist the power of love.  We must cultivate this love in our souls, that we may take our place with all the saints.  For through their love for their nieghbor, they were all pleasing to God.
