  Caravaggio Magdalene



















 Maria Magdalene - Caravaggio



Help me to live a life based on love,

for without love I am nothing,

and all my boasting,

all my achievements in life,

will do me no good at all.

For love is patient and kind,

not jealous or boastful;

love is thoughtful for others,

not arrogant or rude;

love is considerate and kind,

not demanding or selfish;

love is forgiving and understanding,

not irritable or resentful;

love rejoices in all that is good and true,

not in things false or wrong.

Love bears all things, hopes all things,

endures all things.

Love lasts forever. Amen.
