  1. Thank you for this piece, Edward. It both challenged and encouraged me as we continue on this Lenten journey. The quote for St. Theresa of Avila particularly touched me. How often we forget the rich love of God and settle for mediocre substitutes for Him!

    Of course, I also think another issue is that the term “love” in our society has been so distorted to mean a certain non-judgmental sentimentalism. I think it is a task of Catholics is to help recapture that sense of love as union with God, vulnerability, and laying down our lives for our friends and family that you speak of.

    Lord, help me to do that!
