A Personal Love

How much does God love us... each individual one of us.... personally?

He gives us some clues in the writings of His saints.
'God's love for us is freely given and unearned, surpassing all we could ever hope for or imagine.' (St. John Paul II)

'He loved us personally.. centuries before we were born.' (St. Peter Julian Eymard)

'Eternal beauty! You act as if You could not live without Your creature, even though You are life itself....You have fallen madly in love with what You have made!' (St. Catherine of Siena)

'There is no limit to God's love. It is without measure and its depth cannot be sounded.' (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

'When did God's love for you begin? When He began to be God. When did He begin to be God? Never, for He has always been without beginning and without end, and so He has always loved You for eternity.' (St. Francis de Sales)

'You, God, made Yourself lowly to make us great!' (St. Catherine of Siena)

'God is more lenient than you because He is perfectly good and therefore loves you more. Be bold enough then to believe that God is on your side, even when you forget to be on His.' (Venerable Fulton Sheen)

'Jesus offers His lifelong, faithful, and personal friendship, embracing us in tenderness and love.' (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

  1. These are such beautiful quotes, Nancy!

  2. They would actually make beautiful gifts: printed out, organized (in some fun way), and then gift wrapped for someone special.
