Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle’s book, Bringing Lent Home with Pope Francis, is featured in the February issue of Simple Grace. Here, she shares her thoughts on the life-changing power of love and the small miracles she sees around her each day.
“Love is especially powerful and poignant when we discover a need to suddenly stop what we are doing and give ourselves fully in the care of a family member in desperate need,” Donna-Marie says. “Or even at the times when we decide to wholeheartedly engage in a not-so-pretty task—for instance, cleaning a toilet!”
“Our Lord instructs us to love one another. I believe that this should be our continual task to carry out throughout our days,” she continues. “God’s love works miracles. By allowing God to work through us to help others, miracles can and do happen right before our eyes.”
