  1. Love one another – what does that look like? “Allowing our hearts to be broken by the very thing that breaks the heart of God.” (Gregory Boyle “Tattoos on the Heart”) Knowing everyone we meet carries a great burden. Listen.

  2. I go along with Buddha – and Pope Francis makes it sound so difficult – and it’s not; love is easy…………..keep your heart and mind open to others – everyone has a story.

  3. I’m not so sure that love is easy Bettie – but I do agree with you that remembering that everyone has a story is a useful tool to help one focus on the need of another in that moment when one may feel a bit irritated with them!

  4. Wonderful post. It made me smile and gave me purpose. But please, could you ask pope Francis to stop using sexist language? Craftspeople, or artisans? anything but craftsman. It implies that only men can craft love. Just sayin’.

    1. and I wonder…. Can I just email Pope Francis….things seem to be opening up over there…. I reread the post using ARTISANS instead of craftsman…. it’s much better.
