To Love and Be Loved: A Retreat with the Saints by Richard Conlin

Now a man cannot love his neighbour in God, except He love God Himself; wherefore we must love God first, in order to love our neighbours in Him. ~ St Bernard

Whosoever loves God aright loves all God’s creatures ~ St Bernard

I. GOD’S LOVE FOR US

II. OUR LOVE FOR GOD

  • NIGHT PRAYER – Goodnight my beloved, I rejoice in being one day closer to eternity with you. And if you let me wake up, I’ll praise you for another day (redo wording) ~ St Faustina

III. OUR LOVE FOR NEIGHBOUR

  • The proof of love is in the works ~ St Gregory the Great
  • Charity – charity alone is able to turn the soul away from love of self and of the world to pure love of God.  Only charity can convert the soul freeing it from unworthy motives. ~ St Bernard.
