Practical theology

On the love of God poured out in our hearts... Romans 5:5

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 do with your evenings, how you 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, SJ

On the cusp of Pentecost we pray Holy Spirit Come!
Enkindle in us the fire of your love!
