Love There are many questions inside my head The Bible says that love is patient, kind

There are many questions inside my head The Bible says that love is patient, kind and is not jealous How can I, be so patient, kind and trust The Bible says that love does not brag and is not arrogant What happened with me? Why can't I be arrogant If I listen to this Bible, I find myself guilty because love doesn't break God's rules, There was something inside that burns me to become strong and brave to break some rules

I realized that was my instinct

Sometimes, that seems not wrong Sometimes, that's hurting me Love could teach me about living in God's rules

Now I must confess that someone special came into my life Someone has changed my life totally Someone has taken my trials, without any compulsion Someone carved me a complete history

I was so confused,

Everyday I wake up, I found myself so lucky Thank God, for giving me the most beautiful love letter ever written

Because, Love brings me anything that I never had in my whole live

The Example of Christ

If you seek the example of love: “Greater love than this no man has, than to lay down his life for his friends.” Such a man was Christ on the cross. And if he gave his life for us, then it should not be difficult to bear whatever hardships arise for his sake. If you seek patience, you will find no better example than the cross. Christ endured much on the cross, and did so patiently, because “when he suffered he did not threaten; he was led like a sheep to the slaughter and he did not open his mouth.” If you seek an exam- ple of obedience, follow him who became obedient to the Father even unto death. “For just as by the disobedience of one man,” namely, Adam, “many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one man, many were made righteous.

St. Thomas Aquinas

Love, Wealth and Success

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. Then she said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat." "Is the man of the house home?" they asked. "No," she said. "He's out." "Then we cannot come in," they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. So, he said. "Go tell them I'm home, and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in. "We do not go into a house together," they replied. "Why is that?" she wanted to know. One of the old men explained. "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and pointing to another one he said, "This man is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now, go and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home." The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!" he said. "Since that's the case, let us invite in Wealth. Let him come in and fill our home with wealth!" His wife disagreed. "Why don't we invite Success?" Their daughter was listening from the corner of the room. She jumped in with her own suggestion. "Wouldn't it be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!" The wife agreed. "Then let us heed our daughter's advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite Love in to be our guest." The woman went out and asked the three old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest." Love got up and started walking toward the house. Then the other two also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success, "I only invited in Love, as you directed. Why are you all coming in?" The old men replied together, "If you had invited only Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed. However, since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him, because wher- ever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!"

11 Lessons In Life

1. It hurts to love someone and not to be loved in return, But what is more painful is to love

someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the

end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word,

and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't

know what we've been missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to

love someone-but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for

someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because

you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the

person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a timely word may level

stress; a loving word may heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything they just make the

most of everything that comes along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you

were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

SAINT for the WEEK

January 28

St. Thomas Aquinas

Son of the Count of Aquino, born in the family castle in Lombardy near Naples, Italy. Edu- cated by Benedictine monks at Monte Cassino, and at the University of Naples. He secretly joined the mendicant Dominican friars in 1244. His family kidnapped and imprisoned him for a year to keep him out of sight, and deprogram him, but they failed to sway him, and he re- joined his order in 1245.He studied in Paris, France from 1245 to 1248 under Saint Albert the Great, then accompanied Albertus to Cologne, Germany. Ordained in 1250, then returned to Paris to teach. Taught theology at University of Paris. Recalled by king and university to Paris in 1269, then recalled to Naples in 1272 where he was appointed regent of studies while working on the Summa Theologica. On 6 December 1273 he experienced a divine revelation which so enraptured him that he abandoned the Summa, saying that it and his other writings

were so much straw in the wind compared to the reality of the divine glory. He died four months later while en route to the Council of Lyons, overweight and with his health bro- ken by overwork. Pope Leo VIII commanded that his teachings be studied by all theology students. He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1567.

A wise man learns by the mistakes of others, a fool by his own.
