One Love

image

As the Holy Trinity, our God is One Being, although Three Persons, so, likewise, we ourselves must be one. As our God is indivisible, we also must be indivisible, as though we were one man, one mind, one will, one heart, one goodness, without the smallest admixture of malice – in a word, one pure love, as God is Love. “That they may be one, even as We are One” (John 17:22).

~ St. John of Kronstadt

Sam:  “I am that torn in two.”

Frodo:  “Poor Sam!  It will feel like that, I am afraid, but you will be healed.  You were meant to be solid and whole, and you will be…  You cannot be always torn in two.  You will have to be one and whole, for many years.  You have so much to enjoy and to be, and to do.”

~ The Lord of the Rings,
The Return of the King,
(Page 1026, 1029)
