For the Sake of Love

A reflection on Genesis 3 by Mother Maria-Michael Newe, OSB.

Every time we read Genesis we learn more about man in general and a little more even of ourselves. We learn about what the fall has done and the things we have to suffer to return to God wholly and to bring all mankind back to God. We learn to have real compassion on suffering because sometimes it’s not even our fault, it’s just there. But whatever it be, we all have times when we have to struggle to return to God. And yet that is ultimately where peace and joy is. So whatever it is you struggle against, keep fighting, for the sake of love.
