The Cause of My Joy

Patricia Ann Neal

“To love another person is to see the face of God” —  Jean Valjean, Les Misérables

“After the love that unites us to God, conjugal love is the greatest form of friendship” — St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Contra Gentiles III, 123

“Marriage is ‘love of neighbor’ in its most extreme form, and so human love in its most challenging form. As such, marital love is the primary social foundation for any civilization that claims to be built on this commandment of Jesus” — Sr. Paula-Jean Miller in a lecture, Spring of 1994

    • NOS she is out of town this week but I sent her your comments and she was deeply deeply touched. She misses you and has such deep affection for you. How I wish we lived near to you again! God bless you and thank you for always reading and being part of this blog community. You don’t know how much it means to me.
