Hope and joy

LSM 1985 face

‘May a flood of hope and joy wash away all of our heaviness and sadness during the time of Christmas just as the waters of a wadi carry away everything in its course leaving the land rich and fertile.’

Hope and love

LSM 1985 face

"We must place ourselves firmly in an attitude of hope and love as we look towards the future. The Lord is always there. He is present in the darkest tunnels we pass through. The rainbow in the sky is all the more beautiful  and the light more brilliant when the storm is fiercest and the tunnel darkest."

Lettres, Vol 3 p249

All have a right to your love

LSM 1985 face
Did the Lord Jesus choose? Did he not offer his arms wide open to the nails of the cross so that no one might be excluded from his love, be that person the most selfish and most ungrateful of human beings or the hardest and most unjust of employers. The Lord Jesus suffered and died for all. In the name of his love, all, without exception, have a right to your love.
