I believe, technically, I was surfing. I found this new blog, which in turn pointed me to this excellent spiritual feast for women who love priests and are looking for prayers, activities, ideas and outlets for this affection. Now I thought I loved priests, but have I ever even dreamed of such as this?
Not even close. The industrious blogger (who obviously translates her love into tangible gifts!) notes:
Last night I had made the silhouette of The Cure as he was on the last leg of his journey to Ars for the first time. He ran into a local boy and he asked for the way...the famous and beautiful quote goes like this:"Show me the way to Ars and I'll show you the way to Heaven."
That quote makes me teary, it's touching and profound, this was a priest that would be giving his whole being to saving souls, nothing would be held back.
Alright, my love is more slipshod and [ahem] intangible but now I have some inspiration. Print out some of the prayers she offers and get to work. From the Gospel of Saint Luke (12:49):
I have come to bring a fire to the earth; would that it were already ablaze!
