Happy Valentine's Day

Just wanted to take a moment and wish all of you a very Happy Valentine's Day and share one of my absolute favorite prayers:

Nothing is more practical than
 finding God, than
 falling in Love
 in a quite absolute, final way. 
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination,
 will affect everything. 
It will decide 
what will get you out of bed in the morning, 
what you do with your evenings,
 how you spend your weekends,
 what you read, whom you know,
 what breaks your heart, 
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
 Fall in Love, stay in love,
 and it will decide everything.

- Pedro Arrupe, SJ

I hope your days are filled with joy, laughter and, of course, Love!

ps - there's a beautiful image/design of the entire poem that cant be found here.
