You might think that Valentine’s Day is superfluous or silly (and I might agree with you), but perhaps a new way to think about love on this over-commercialized day:
Nothing is more practical than
finding God, 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, whom 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
What are you in love with? What seizes your imagination? What do you do with your nights and weekends? Why do you get up in the morning? How do you sustain love?
