Work Overview

Text from the English Standard Bible:

1 Corinthians 13 (partial)

Love is patient love is kind

Does not envy

Love does not boast

It is not arrogant

It is not rude

Faith, hope, and love abide

But the greatest of these is love

Love believes all things

Love hopes all things

Love endures all things

It is not resentful

Love never ends

John 10:14-15

I am the good shepherd;

And I know my sheep

As the Father knows me

Even so I know the Father

And I lay down my life for the sheep

St Mary Eurphrasier Pelletier - Foundress of the Nuns of the Good Shepherd Order

(From the Good Shepherd website)

I have always loved, and I have loved with all the strength of my soul.
