The Missal painted by John William Waterhouse


When I think about Love, I think of God
because He is what Love is .
Can you think of a Love more giving or
caring, than is His?
We can not begin to fathom
the depths that He would go
To show us that He loves us
and to Him we can always go.
He desires to be our Beloved,
that we love Him above all things.
This was His Commandment,
for the Blessings that He brings.
So our hearts need not be troubled
while on this earth below,
For if we Love Him with all our heart
untold riches He will bestow.
