For You…

For you love was born,
and to you love is given,
and from you love emanates into the cosmos
and touches all those around you on its way.
And in your pain and in your sorrow, you are blessed.
Because I too have felt pain and sorrow.
For I too thought the pain would never end,
but it does, and on the other side is an even bigger and more open heart,
until one day the only tears you will shed are those of love and of joy.
– Mother Mary
