In the frenzy of love...

  And so we know and rely on the love
God has for us.  God is love. - I John 4:16

Van Gogh - Starry night

"Consider what is most beautiful
and most noble on earth,
what pleases the mind and the other faculties,
and what delights the flesh and the senses. 
Consider the world, and the other worlds that shine
in the night - the whole universe.

Well, this, along with all the satisfied follies of the heart,
is worth nothingis nothing and less than nothing.,
compared with this God of mine! --- of yours!

Infinite treasure, most beautiful pearl;
humbled, become a slave, reduced to the form of a 
servant in the stable where He willed to be born,
in Joseph's workshop, in His passion 
and in His ignominious death;
and in the frenzy of Love --- 
the blessed Eucharist.

St Josemaría Escrivá
