Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


The Measure of Your Love

Some quotes from Catherine of Siena (1347-1380), the great peacemaker and Doctor of the Church, on this her feast day:
Catherine of Siena"You are rewarded not according to your work or your time but according to the measure of your love."

"There will be love in proportion to faith and faith in proportion to love."

"They love their neighbors with the same love with which they love me."

"The service you cannot render me you must do for your neighbors. Thus it will be evident that you have me within your soul by grace."

"The soul is in God and God in the soul, just as the fish is in the sea and the sea in the fish."
