May the Holy Spirit make you creative in charity, persevering in your commitments, and brave in your initiatives, so that you will be able to offer your contribution to the building up of the “civilization of love”. The horizon of love is truly boundless: it is the whole world!--Pope Benedict XVI

Blessings to our friends in Oxford!

Stratford Caldecott, Winston & Barbara Elliott
The Community of Eternal Love, the Blessed Trinity makes his creatures by Love for Love. And then, if free will does not hide it in the darkness, our souls expand in the love we share with one another, a glimpse of the brilliant and overwhelming Love of the Triune God who is Love in singular and communal form. Mysterious? Yes. A gift of mystery. A loving response to love received our greatest offering?

Three questions worth asking: What is worth living for? What is worth dying for? Of what is the spirit made? The answer to all three is the same. Love.

Tessa & Leonie Caldecott with Barbara
Love (another word is Grace) is all around us and yet...the darkness often seems to be expanding today...the victory is promised...but many battles are lost until the end...and yet some victories? To our beloved friends each evening of the days until the Creator of time slips us out of time, sleep well kept warm by the Love of all Loves from the Giver of Love eternal and Grace abundant.

Thank you to Friends from far away who
