“Fall in Love”

“Fall in Love”

(Attributed to Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ)

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.

***

Now, read over and over again:

Fall in Love (with God), stay in love (with God), and it will decide everything.
