Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

C.S. Lewis, “The Four Loves” (via lifeinpoetry)

Pilgrimages at Teopoli

Since 1977, when a large wooden Cross was erected next to the water fall, Teopoli became a center for monthly pilgrimages. These pilgrimages have three strong moments of common prayer: the Holy mass, the Stations of the Cross and the Holy Rosary with Eucharistic Benediction. Please remember this is a day of prayer. All who come must participate in all the religious functions of the day.

For info and bus reservations please call Società Unita at 416-243-7319 or contact info@teopoli.com.
