I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. 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 morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Eyes and Smiles

I read an article this morning from the "God in All Things" blog that really  hit home - it talked about how humans rarely make eye contact because it makes us vulnerable. And I thought to myself, well, I usually don't make eye contact to people passing on the street, but when I give Communion (at Church & Ministry of Care), I do. Sometimes, we even exchange a smile.

And it makes a difference. It makes a difference because, as the article pointed out, it is in that moment and within that gaze that we see God in another person.
