Who Do You Love?.................July 21








"To love is to be transformed
into what we love.
To love God is therefore
to be transformed into God."


St. John of the Cross


Here is the meaning of the French words:

"The Little Golden Door [of the tabernacle]. O sole Friend of my soul! Answer me ... Comfort me, because I desire no other friend than You."

A very nice card and the text very beautiful that touches the soul deeply!

Thank You John for translating the words from the French into the English so that all can understand and meditate on its meaning.

May we all be transformed each day as we decide to follow the Lord or the world. Lord, may I always choose you and not be lured away by the worlds false allurements! Hope you are having a blessed day Micki! John K.

what a friend we have in Jesus ...take it to the Lord in prayer.
I pray best when Im singing
At communion I think of..
Let all mortal flesh keep silent and in fear and worship stand ponder nothing earthly minded for with healing in His Hands,Christ our God to earth descendeth our pure homage to demand.

Prayerflowers - Hi my friend. So nice to see you hear. I do pray things are going good. Blessings flying your way on angel wings.

Anne - So glad you enjoy St. John of the Cross' quotes. Hope your "wants" are fulfilled.

Lisa - I'm so pleased that you enjoy the cards and quotes. My thanks for your blessings.


John - Love the translation. Interesting thought to have no other friend than Jesus.

John K - Thank you also for your blessing. What a wonderful goal...I love it...to be transformed as we follow the Lord.

Ginny - What a peaceful and loving way to spend the day.

diddleymaz - Too funny. Sometimes I find myself singing songs I learned from my Baptist-turned Catholic mother. I'll never forget a friends little girl, waiting for her while mom got a quicki hair cut..... The little darling was singing at the top of her lungs......"Holy God we praise Thy name."
