Sunday Meditations: Love

Don’t believe in the 60’s
The golden age of pop
You glorify the past
When the future dries up
Heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he’s gonna kick the darkness
’til it bleeds daylight
I… I believe in love

I feel like I’m falling
Like I’m spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside of me
With a presence I can feel
I… I believe in love

–Bono & U2

As truly as God is our Father, so truly is God our mother
And God revealed that in everything and especially in these sweet words
where God says,
“I am the power and goodness of fatherhood,
I am the wisdom and lovingness of motherhood.
I am the light and grace that is all blessed love.”

–Julian of Norwich

I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion–
I have shudder’d at it.
I shudder no more.
I could be martyr’d for my religion
Love is my religion
And I could die for that.
I could die for you.

–John Keats
