"This is my commandment, that you love
one another as I have loved you. Greater
love has no man than this, that a man lay
down his life for his friends. You are my
friends if you do what I command you."
"I have loved you with an everlasting
love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness
to you. Again I will build you, and you shall
be built, O virgin Israel!" 2
A Child's Heart
A child's heart loves purity:
It's his response to Father's call;
It brings peace and security;
It guards his soul against the fall.
A child's heart loves loyalty:
It seeks his Father's will in all;
It underpins his charity,
As he responds to brother's call.
A child's heart loves dignity:
He sees his Savior's eyes in all;
He loves unconditionally:
He builds a bridge and fells the wall.
The purest love is Chastity:
It's how the Father loves the Son;
The Essence of the Trinity,
Which forms the Spirit in Their One.
The chaste heart loves as Jesus does:
The purest love that ever was!
