Love Letters From God
The Sacred Scriptures … are most fittingly likened to a honeycomb, for while in the simplicity of their language they seem dry, within they are filled with sweetness.
—Hugh of St. Victor, Didascalicon
What Do We Do With This Great Love?
Francis’s own song defined love for him. It was to live and be in God’s most holy will. And Francis has learned from Christ’s own words in the Gospels what God’s will is for those who love him. They are to feed the hungry, give drink to those who thirst, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, visit the sick and those in prison. And they are to do all that for love of his love who did the same for us when he walked among us. He remembered when he was hungry and thirsty, and a stranger, and naked, sick and in prison.
