Ignatian Reflection On Love

This came from a young man spending the summer in service to others at Mt. Irenaeus. He was kind enough to forward it to me on email tonight.

Nothing is more practical than finding God,
That is, falling in love in a quite
absolute way

What you are in love with,
What seizes your imagination
Will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning
What you will do with your evenings,
How you spend you weekends
What you read, who you know, what breaks your heart,
And what amazes you with joy and gratitude
Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything

Pedro Arrupe, SJ
