The final word...

"The final word is love." - Dorothy Day

 "It was not enough for Him 
that He should become one of ourselves
by adopting a human nature like our own.
It was not enough that He
should share the hardships of a life like our own—
that He should suffer and die
and atone for our sins, in our name.

He loved us, 
and He would not rest until
He should be completely united to us.
And in His love 
He devised this most extraordinary method of union,
in which He Himself becomes our food!
Truly a tremendous lover!"

Dom Mary Eugene Boylan
This Tremendous Lover

"Love is never finished." 
- Pope Benedict XVI
