TUESDAY OF THE FIFTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME
-from Father General Pedro Arrupe (1907-1991), [who witnessed the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945] affirming that the essence of the human vocation is to fall in love with God:
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, what you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love [with the Lord], stay in love, and it will decide everything.
