The Blessed Springing of LOVE! The Hymn of LOVE!
Today, that many of us celebrate the Holy Resurection , I dedicate to ALL my flickr friends the sacred Hymn of LOVE, together with these blessed new Crocus images! The magnificent stamen is Springing again!!! Spring is also the symbol of victorious Life over death!!!
THE HYMN OF LOVE ( By St. Paul - my own translation from the Ancient Greek text ) :
" Though I speak the languages of men and of angels -- but I have not LOVE -- I have become, like a sounding brass or a clanging cymbal!
And though I have the gift of prophecy , and of understanding all Mysteries, and all Knowledge, and though I have enough Faith to move mountains -- but I have not LOVE -- I am nothing!!
And though I offer all my goods to the poor, and my body to be burnt -- but I have not LOVE -- I gain nothing!
LOVE is patient, and kind! LOVE is never jealous! LOVE never becomes arrogant !! It never throws insults!
LOVE does not behave rudely, it does not demand for itself, it never gets agressive, it always thinks positivel!!
LOVE does not rejoice in injustice, but it rejoices in Truth!
LOVE , always believes, always hopes, always endures!!
LOVE never fails !!! "
