"You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." -1 John 4:4

"Provide moneybags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also your heart will be.'" -Luke 12: 32-34

"Every creature, and in particular every human person, is the fruit of God's thought, and an act of his love, a love that is boundless, faithful, and everlasting..." -Pope Benedict XVI

"Too often, though, the beauty that is thrust upon us is illusory and deceitful, superficial and blinding, leaving the onlooker dazed; instead of bringing him out of himself and opening him up to horizons of true freedom as it draws him aloft, it imprisons him within himself and further enslaves him, depriving him of hope and joy….

"Authentic beauty, however, unlocks the yearning of the human heart, the profound desire to know, to love, to go towards the Other, to reach for the Beyond. If we acknowledge that beauty touches us intimately, that it wounds us, that it opens our eyes, then we rediscover the joy of seeing, of being able to grasp the profound meaning of our existence."

-Pope Benedict XVI in his letter Meeting with Artists

Summer Love

Inspired by a lady in one of Scott Schuman's photographs.

Current favorite song: Ave Verum Corpus by W. A. Mozart

Meditation of the day: "Love cannot triumph unless it becomes the one passion of our life. Without such passion we may produce isolated acts of love; but our life is not really won over or consecrated to an ideal. Until we have a passionate love for our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament we shall accomplish nothing." -St. Peter Julian Eymard, quote courtesy of blogger Jean Heimann.

Adore Him

Christ as the Holy Eucharist, Love itself... 
a true mystery and one that takes faith to trust in. But it is well worth trying to understand, because it is Him and He is dying of love for us!
"I have wept for love of them... they turn away. I will break their hearts of stone, give them hearts for love alone... all who dwell in dark and sin, my hand will save... Finest bread I will provide, till their hearts be satisfied..."
-Jesus in the hymn "Here I Am, Lord"

*These images were not created by me, 
but are here in this post for you all. :)
May Peace be yours.

Here's a little exploration in style + story! 

And a wonderful verse~

"Though time is too precious to waste, it must never be thought that what was lost is irretrievable. Once the Divine is introduced, there comes the opportunity to make up for losses. God is the God of the second chance." - Archbishop Fulton Sheen

"You are invited... to know the love of God is the greatest joy and security in life." -Sister Ida, founder of the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart 

"People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone." -Audrey Hepburn, actress and philanthropist

Support Freedom

This was part of an awesome advertising/ graphic design project in which I had to promote a great cause with a poster I'd design... and now I want to actually spread the word about Night Light with the finished work! 

For Mother's Day or any other gift-giving occasion, stop by Night Light's online store and help exploited women around the world to stay independent.
