• “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Prayers Ancient and Modern 07/13

O God, who art the unsearchable abyss of peace, the ineffable sea of love, the fountain of blessings, and the bestower of affection, who sendest peace to those that receive it; open to us this day the sea of Thy love, and water us with plenteous streams from the riches of Thy grace. Make us children of quietness, and heirs of peace. Enkindle in us the fire of Thy love; strengthen our weakness by Thy power: bind us closely to Thee and to each other in one firm and indissoluble bond of unity—Amen.

Syrian Clementine Liturgy.

O Lord, help us, we entreat Thee, to shew forth our love of Thee by keeping Thy commandments. They are not grievous: remove far from us a repining spirit, an unloving fear to transgress, and all willful disobedience—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.
