  32. 32. Freedom and Love “Love consists of a commitment which limits one’s freedom—it is a giving of the self, and to give oneself means to limit one’s freedom on behalf of the other. This might seem to be something negative or unpleasant, but love makes it a positive, joyful and creative thing. “Freedom exists for the sake of love. Man longs for love more than for freedom—freedom is the means, and love is the end.” ---BJP2G, “Love and Responsibility”

O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Permit me not to be separated from Thee. From the malignant enemy defend me. In the hour of my death call me And bid me come to Thee That with Thy saints I may praise Thee Forever and ever. Amen.
