The madness of  love                                                                                                                           is a blessed fate;                                                                                                                                  and if we understood this                                                                                                                      we would seek no other:                                                                                                                       it brings into unity                                                                                                                                what was divided,                                                                                                                                and this is the truth:                                                                                                                    bitterness it makes sweet,                                                                                                                     it makes the stranger a neighbor,                                                                                                        and what was lowly it raises on high.

Dear God, help me today to love others, to not grow tired of serving, to rejoice with You in this wonderful creation. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, so it shall ever be, world without end.
