Weekly Affirmation:

 

O Lord of Compassion, teach me to shed tears of love for all beings.  May I behold them as my very own – different expressions of my Self.  O Spirit, let the warmth of my love melt the chill in error-frozen brothers. 

                             

                                                                              (Whispers from Eternity)
