Each morning I have left our apartment at 6:30 to walk around the city and stop at one of my favorite churches for prayer. The Badia, just up the street, is a favorite because it is completely quiet unless the nuns and monks are singing. As I walk in I take a little piece of paper with a Biblical saying printed in Italian and English from a box on a table. Here’s the one for today.
We are well aware that we have passed over from death to life because we love our brothers. Whoever does not love, remains in death.
1 John 3:14
