Continuing with Father Andrew SDC.
It is to me a comfort to think that the most natural thing in the whole world is also the most supernatural, and that is love.
The Life and Letters of Father Andrew, p159.
And turning now to the Welsh poet, W.H. Davies, to amplify that thought.
Love is a staff, and Love’s a rod,
A wise man and a fool;
I thought that I was wise, until
Love sent me back to school.
The Song of Love IV, 1926.
Let’s pray for the humility to go back to school and learn from those we meet. God loves us, ‘supernaturally’ as we used to say, through their natural love for us, whether as spouse, parent, child, friend, or the one who smiles at us in the ticket office.
