“Any lifestyle — religious life, ordained life, single life, married life — can be about loving deeply. It depends on where you feel called, the particular contours of how that love seeks to express itself.”

 Sr. Julie Vieira, IHM

I love the use of the word “contours” here. As if we can blanket our own love upon the pre-existing forms to make those forms, as well as ourselves, fuller. Better. Useful. More comfortable. More lovable. A better lover.
