BOUNTIFUL

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed fully grown to shelter everyone under its brim shade.

“God always forgives, human beings sometimes forgive; but when nature is mistreated, she never forgives.”

Pope Francis

…over the years I’ve learned that forgiving others frees me to attain better goals…

…What results do you achieve when you forgive first?…

BE A DELIGHT

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough!”

“Each moment is all we need, not more.  Be happy now and if you show through your actions that you love others, including those who are poorer than you, you’ll give them happiness, too.  It doesn’t take much — it can be just giving a smile.

The world would be a much better place if everyone smiled more.  So smile, be cheerful, be joyous that God loves you.”

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

BEING IN THE MIDDLE

Opium Poppies Painting by Simon Verelst

(these flowers used to hang in my parents’ foyer)

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

When my dear Maman spoke

“Tis best to be in the middle”

saying

“You can help raise someone up with your left hand and with your right hand, someone above you can pull you up, so just stay in the middle.”

So would she tell me, “either way, it’s good to be in the middle.”

…her wisdom stays with me…

“Man is in the middle between God and nothingness.”

by Saint John Paul II

…these Opium Poppies now adorn my writing corner with delight…

LED BY LOVE

The Virgin of Guadalupe (1959) by Salvador Dali

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

Mary’s love is what led Salvador Dali to create this awesome rendition of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Known for his eccentric Surrealist art style, Dali experienced a 10-year conversion away from Freudian expression to faith found in Italian classical art.  He wrote that “nothing worse can happen to an ex-Surrealist than to become a mystic and know how to draw.”

Exceptional is this privately owned masterpiece to reflect Dali’s gift to mesh the Old World with the New and bridge his faith to our contemporary age for future believers.
