Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  – 1 Cor 13:7

Reflection. Someone would have a poor idea of human and marital love by thinking that affection and joy vanish when difficulties come.  This is when we really see what motivates people.  Here also is where gift and tenderness are consolidated, because true love does not think about itself, but about how to increase the good of the beloved.      – Pope John Paul II

Prayer. Lord God, transform me into the compassionate, tender person I want to be.  I give You my weakness in exchange for Your strength.
