Late last night as I was trying to stop thinking so I might fall asleep, a quote attributed to Father Pedro Arrupe, a former world-wide leader of the Jesuit order of priests, came into my mind. I said to myself, “I should use that for a blog post,” and promptly fell asleep. So today, here it is.
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. (In the Hands of God – Personal Prayer of Pedro Arrupe, S.J)
