Where there is no love, put love

“Where there is no love, put love and you will draw out love.” St. John of the Cross

I had the opportunity for several years to occasionally hear Confessions at local Catholic High School. I cut through the busy cafeteria to get to the chapel, and it always hurt me to see so many overcrowded tables with happy kids and then one or two kids sitting by themselves eating their sandwich with their heads down. How much difference it would make to these lonely kids if someone would simply sit down next to them and try to show interest in them!
