The Red Letter Day in Your Spiritual Life

“When I was a novice, our novice master would say to us, ‘the red letter day in your spiritual life will come, not when you believe that you love God, but when you realize that he loves you!’  Many years of experience (experience of others and my own) have shown me how right he was. What a transformation occurs in our lives, how rapidly we begin to change, when we realize how much and how unconditionally he loves and accepts us.”

Anthony de Mello, SJ


  1. I often tend to forget how much God loves me. I know I know, it’s a common sin but this is why I like reading blogs and stories of other people. It reminds me how much I am blessed no matter how hard life becomes. Unconditional, that’s the word.

  2. Every day I marvel at the fact that God loves me. I am so blessed not only to be loved by the Creator of all that is, but to be aware that I am loved – not for anything that I have done, but only because God chooses to love everyone. It is when we realize that we are loved, that we are free to be the person that we have been created to be. I pray that I will always be in awe of God’s unconditional love.

  3. I know this to be true too! It is HIS love that breaks my heart causing me to bow low before such amazing grace and pure love. I came to your website by way of my retreat master. I am currently doing the “Retreat in Daily Life” and enjoying it very much. A. Ross
