Love Quote of the Day (The Love Project, Day 8)

religious medalsToday’s love quote comes from Brian K. Kravec from CatholicMom.com. He writes:

I’m sending this along for the Love Project that Meg told us about through CM/FB. I actually wrote this in my wife’s Christmas card this year!

St. John Chrysostom recommends that husbands say this to their wives (and mean it):

“I have taken you in my arms, and I love you, and I prefer you to my life itself. For the present life is nothing, and my most ardent dream is to spend it with you in such a way that we may be assured of not being separated in the life reserved for us … I place your love above all things, and nothing would be more bitter or painful to me than to be of a different mind than you.”
