I’ve been reading a book by Dorothy Day, The Reckless Way of Love, and I really liked this quote. It’s a little off topic, but then is love ever off topic when it comes to Christianity? In case you don’t know Dorothy Day was the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and started the first of many houses of hospitality for the poor and homeless.
“If we could only learn that the important thing is love, and that we will be judged on love–t0 keep on loving, and showing that love, over and over, whether we feel it or not, seventy times seven, to mothers-in-law, to husbands, to children–and be oblivious to insult, or hurt, or injury–not to see them, not to hear them. It is a hard, hard doctrine.”
