  1. Um, I am surrounded by love all.of.the.time. Our Lord, my family and my friends. I am never without love... and never without God. His love is all I need.

    I hope that in all my conversations with my family and friends today (and always), that I exude the love that I have for them. :)

    Happy V-day!!

  2. I'm planning to take a few minutes of my lunch break to pop into the Catholic chapel on campus and spend a few minutes before the Blessed Sacrament praying for my future husband and everyone who is seeking a spouse or discerning married life

  3. Going to Mass and receiving Him in the Most Holy Eucharist always reminds me of how much He loves me. Also, praying and offering sacrifices for the people in my life so that they'll be blessed today is how I'll show my love to others in conjunction with doing something sweet and unexpected for someone to brighten their day.

  4. I'm receiving God's love today by spending a Holy Hour in Adoration!

  5. I am starting a dating fast so that I can freely give my love to my brothers in Christ without any ulterior motives (ie. hoping that maybe one of them will ask me out for my "holiness"). It's my way of learning to love with a no-strings-attached kind of love that Jesus possesses. It's an idea I've been toying with for over a month but I just officially started it on Tuesday.

  6. This is a fabulous giveaway! I actually say Jason Evert at NCYC 2005--he is awesome! I try share God's love with others by going out of my way and doing something special for someone at least once a day. This can make all the difference to a persons day--doing something as simple as letting somebody go ahead of you in line can make all the difference to one person.

  7. Simply by being able to love those who have loved me unconditionally, I am receiving God's love today and everyday. Happy Valentine's Day and God Bless! <3

  8. before I went to school today, my mom told me she loves me and gave me a blessing with holy water. In school, my friend hugged me and we had some wonderful chats. When my sister came home from school today, she hugged me and just wouldn't let go. The love I felt today from Him and my friends and family was and is special. But also, it's the same love I get everyday. I just need to learn to appreciate it more. Not only on valentines day.


  9. Received Jesus in Holy Communion this morning! “The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white host.” -Archbishop Fulton J Sheen
    I love that quote! Will be baking something special for the family & handing out love notes (Valentines). :) childofgod5{at}live{dot}com
    Praying for my future vocation and all my spiritual sisters! ♥Elise

  10. Today I'm sitting down to prepare for my first Bible study that I am leading tomorrow! I'm very excited, though slightly nervous, but I hope that I can spread God's love to the lovely ladies joining my study. :)

  11. These words from a letter of Sister Lucy of Fatima to a priest very tired, explain how to love God and the other persons in our life:
    "" What I recommend to you, above all, is that you get close to the Tabernacle and pray. In fervent prayer you will receive the light, strength, and grace that you need to sustain you, and to share with others. Follow this road and you will see that in prayer you will find more science, more light, more strength, more grace and virtue than you could ever achieve by reading many books, or by great studies. Never consider as wasted the time you spend in prayer. You will discover that in prayer God communicates to you the light, strength, and grace you need to do all He expects of you. All of us, but especially the superior, without prayer, or who habitually sacrifices prayer for material things, is like a hollow, split reed that serves only to beat the whites of eggs into castles of foam which, without sugar to sustain them, soon dissolve and become as polluted water.""

  12. I'm struggling with my Lenten sacrifices already, and realising that this suffering is only a drop in the ocean of the suffering Christ did for me, for us. Jesus hurt, He bled, He suffered but because of all this, today as I suffer just a tiny bit, I am slowly beginning to realise exactly how much God loves me then, now and forever. It's truly remarkable.

  13. Through great, godly female friendships :)

  14. I'm receiving God's love today and everyday because He has always been with me in the good times and the bad times. He always forgives and supports.

  15. I absolutely love this book. I got it for Christmas and read it in two days. Huh, never thought of bringing it up on Valentine's day!
