Thought of the Day November 3, 2020 Go forth in peace

By 10:04 AM

“Go forth in peace, for you have followed the good road. Go forth without fear; for He that created you has sanctified you, has always protected you, and loves you as a mother. Blessed be Thou, O God, for having created me.” – St. Clare, on her deathbed speaking to herself


When someone has fallen in  love with God there is no fear of death for as St John has said: "Perfect love has cast out fear." Our love will be perfect when we cross that last obstacle in our journey, death. But knowing that God loves me and that I love God in turn, I will have the strength in Christ to embrace death with the hope of seeing the One whom I love. For on the other side of death is not nothingness but love.
