“Where there is no love, put love and you will find love.” ~ Saint John of the Cross
Whoever first plants the seed in any soil hitherto fallow, and cultivates the shoot with humble toil near steep or shallow…
They will be first to come upon the flower whose instant glory can recreate, in even this trivial hour, the Eden story.
Blessed are they who stand upon their vow and are insistent that love in this bleak here, this barren now become existent.
Blessed are they who battle jest and scorn to keep love growing from embryo immaculately born to blossom showing.
Primarily for them will petals part to draw and win them.
It, when the pollen finds their opened hearts, will bloom within them.
~ A poem by Sister Miriam of the Holy Spirit, O.C.D.
