Love and Hope – A Reflection

May 17, 2021
Last night’s Waxing Crescent Moon

Thomas Merton shared this piece in No Man Is an Island (p. 18) and it truly resonates with me as this Monday comes to a close.

If we continue to love [God] as our end, but place our hope in something else together with [God], our love and our hopes are not what they should be, for no [man or woman] can serve two masters.

How many times is this choice placed in front of us? Hope and Love… they aren’t conditional, they are a Divine gift. At the end of the day, my hope is in God who’s love is unconditional.
