Hard Lenten Promises..........February 22

"You can't say your Lenten promise
is too hard after looking at this photo."


Where there is no love, put love and
you will find love.

This is a photo that came in an email. It is not my holy card.
It just touched my soul.

Dear children, Today, with my motherly heart, I call you gathered around me to love your neighbour. My children, stop. Look in the eyes of your brother and see Jesus, my Son. If you see joy, rejoice with him. If there is pain in the eyes of your brother, with your tenderness and goodness, cast it away, because without love you are lost. Only love is effective; it works miracles. Love will give you unity in my Son and the victory of my heart. Therefore, my children, love. Our Lady's Medjugorje message, September 2, 2008

I have seen this picture before, but by a different artist. Nonetheless it is a very moving picture that touches the human soul, and makes one aware of our nothingness and the depths of Jesus love for each and everyone of us, His Children! John K.

Anonymous - Yes, we are responsible, our sins put Him there.

ca.snflwr - I agree.

diddleymaz - What a warming thought. We do have an awesome God.

Ed Sousa,Sr.- Another beautiful message.

John K - Our "nothingness" and His "depth" such a visual. Thanks.

Our love for Christ is so small in return for His love for us which is so great. Thanks for the visual reminder, Roz

Micki said...

Bella - Great thought and so true. Thanks.

People drabbling on about our sinfulness and blahblahblah...there is no proof he even existed, let alone is some kind of holy figure. It's just mass hysteria and mass stupidity that would have people believe this; let alone believe some Easter bunny in the sky sacrificed themself for us. The sinfully ones. The uspeakable nothing's of the world. You're mental if you think this actually happened.

Anonymous - I find your comment so sad. I will pray for you and your soul.
What bothers me is with your belief why are you on this site which is nothing but pictures and words about and for the love of God. May God bless you whether you believe or not.
