The Doctors Speak...Light, Life and Love (15)

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

St. Basil the Great

St. Basil composed these words
in honor of Our Blessed Mother :

O flow’r of grace,
divinest flower!
God’s light thy life,
God’s love thy dowr.

+       +       +

In St. Basil's Ascetical Works he eloquently adds:

The love of God is not something that is taught, for we do not learn from another to rejoice in the light or to desire life nor has anyone taught us to love our parents and nurses.

Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
