Planting Seeds of Love

On 24 March 1980 Archbishop Óscar Romero was assassinated while celebrating Mass at the Divina Providencia Chapel in San Salvador. Working tirelessly on behalf of justice, he planted sacrificial seeds of love in El Salvador that resound around the world.

Today as we remember Saint Óscar Romero’s life of courageous faith and sacrifice, the love of Jesus he shared with so many, here is something for our hearts to contemplate.

“We plant seeds that will one day grow, we water the seeds already planted knowing they hold future promise. We cannot do everything and there is a sense of liberation realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest.” Saint Óscar Romero

grace, peace & SEEDS OF LOVE

      Sometimes when we look at gigantic challenges we despair of going anything. But, if we do one small thing, then another, and keeping going – small things become big things. Blessings Debbie!! 🌸✨🤗✨🌸
