|Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multifaith Web site. We provide inspirational
quotes by exploring a new theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This site is offered in the
conviction that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and furthermore, that finding the
commonalities among the world's religions is more healing than pointing up their differences.
Religion as an institution is precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities.
However you choose to worship, I hope this site enhances your journey.

On Today's Theme:
Love, languid as still waters and powerful enough to move mountains:
it is also the golden thread that sews our collective lives together in a
beautiful, unified tapestry that graces the shining walls of heaven.
- Lisa Bowman
Love alone can unite living beings so as to complete and fulfill them...
for it alone joins them by what is deepest in themselves. All we need
is to imagine our ability to love developing until it embraces the
totality of men and the earth.
Love is the affinity which links and draws together the elements
of the world...Love, in fact, is the agent of universal synthesis.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955)
Jesuit priest, philosopher, paleontologist
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
African American clergyman and social activist
You change your life by changing your heart.
Max Lucado (1955- )
Christian minister and author
I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts,
then there is no hurt, but only more love.

Prayer opens the understanding to the brightness of Divine Light,
and the will to the warmth of Heavenly Love...

...and now, The Last Word:
The school of Christ is the school of love.
In the last day, when the general examination
takes place...Love will be the whole syllabus.
St. Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621)
Jesuit priest and Cardinal
