As I continue my mediation of Pope Benedict’s encyclical, might I suggestion the following three quotations as a Sunday meditation, for they are among countless jewels in this very pastoral and comforting teaching – as mentioned before the entire text can be found on the Vatican web site: www.vatican.va
“ Contact with the visible manifestations of God’s love can awaken within us a feeling of joy born of the experience of being love.”
“….God is in fact more deeply present to me than I am to myself.”
“Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities: I can give them the look of love they crave.”
Have a most joyful and blessed Sunday everyone.

Fr. Joseph, I am absolutely astonished at how much I am enjoying reading this encyclical - I find I can only take in bits and pieces so it has time to settle in - and that I am sitting at the foot of a wonderful teacher.
I so did not expect this at all :)
