Christ’s heart was a fountain…. A fountain of love.
He took the love that He received and He gave it away. Continually.
His heart was ever touched with the cries of human suffering. He always sought to relieve.
He never sought to turn this fountain off. He lived to love.
“Jesus, precious Jesus. A whole fountain of love was in His soul.” (1MCP 201)
This fountain still flows. From it comes Christ’s love for us; from it we receive love to love another.
He asks us to be fountains, too. Fountains to continually share what He gives us with the world; that receive to give; that never seek to keep things to ourselves; that never seek release from duty.
Stagnant fountains grow polluted quickly. Stagnant lives have no hope of staying pure.
