There is nothing else that can expand the human soul, actualize the human potential for growth, or bring a person into the full possession of life more than a love which is unconditional.
— John Powell, S.J.
A garden tended by loving hands reaps succulent fruits. Our attention to family and friends, when offered lovingly, likewise reaps rewards for all of us. Our efforts are not soon forgotten by us or our loved ones. Each loving act we express finds its home, in another’s heart as well as our own.
The decision to love someone unconditionally is simply made – and yet it takes daily persistent effort. How quickly we forget the promised benefits. Each day a gentle reminder is needed.
"I will love wholly and nurture the fuller development of someone special." This one commitment, carried out, guarantees two vital, growing souls.
