Excerpt from Meditation on May 22, 2015, in Magnificat, taken from St. Catherine of Siena’s writings:  “But I want you to understand that we can neither love God nor be virtuous without the mediation of our neighbors, because it is in our neighbors that we find love and virtue.  How so?  I’ll tell you.  I can’t show my Creator my love for him directly, because I can be of no service to God.  So I have to use God’s creatures as intermediaries, and do for them the service I cannot do for God.  So it was when Christ asked Peter, ‘Peter, do you love me?’  When Peter said ‘Yes,’  Christ responded, ‘Feed my little sheep.  In the love you bear me you can do me no service; so do it for your neighbors.'”
