The greatest of these is love

In my work as a Catholic writer, my favorite question is my closer: “What do you know for sure?”

Mary Marrocco: All is given, all is received

“When we suffer the death of a beloved person, can we also live in a small way the commandment: ‘Do this in memory of me’? Give all, give your blood, your flesh, in releasing this person you love and long to hold onto, letting only God hold your beloved.”

Laura Kelly Fanucci: Catching God at the ballfield

“Often we picture God like an umpire: crouching down whenever we step up to the plate, waiting to call strikes and outs, watching for the least infraction. But ours is a God of justice and mercy. Not simply the judge with the rulebook and the last word, but also love incarnate.”
