To Love and Revive Them

'Dearest Jesus! How I long to love You and make You greatly loved! 
During Your life on this poor earth, You made, of a few loaves, 
life and nourishment for a crowd. 
Let me be, in Your divine hands, the instrument for another such work. 
Give me... to souls, to love and revive them.'

(from Fervorinos From Galilee's Hills, compiled by a Religious, Pelligrini, Australia, 1936, p. 237)

Painting: Roland Delaporte


  1. What a beautiful painting and prayer. I especially love "Give me,,, to love and revive them," What a great reminder of living the Gospel life in His divine hands. The blues and golds in the painting are delicious!!!! Thanks for sharing Nancy.... I am enjoying catching up with your posts as I have not been in cyberspace but rarely these past months. So nourishing to be here....

    1. It's so good to have you back in cyberspace, where we are revived by the inspiration of your words. !

      I, too, love the colors in this painting. Thanks so much!
