Pada awalnya manusialah yang menciptakan kebiasaan. Namun lama kelamaan, kebiasaanlah yang menentukan tingkah laku manusia. Ada seorang yang hidupnya amat miskin. Namun walaupun ia miskin ia tetap rajin membaca. Suatu hari secara tak sengaja ia membaca sebuah buku kuno. Buku itu mengatakan bahwa di sebuah pantai tertentu ada sebuah batu yang hidup, yang bisa mengubah benda apa saja menjadi emas. Setelah mempelajari isi buku itu dan memahami seluk-beluk batu tersebut, iapun berangkat menuju pantai yang disebutkan dalam buku kuno itu. Dikatakan dalam buku itu bahwa batu ajaib itu agak hangat bila dipegang, seperti halnya bila kita menyentuh makhluk hidup lainnya.
If 'weight' is measured by the 'kilograms' unit, if 'far' is measured by 'mile' unit, if 'height' is measured by 'feet' unit, by what is 'love' measured by? Love is measured by how much sacrifices one has done. The question "How much love do you have?" equals to "How many sacrifices have you done?" The question "How deep A loves B?" is shown by "How many sacrifices A has done for B?"
Station of the Cross is one of my favorite prayers. I try to never skip it during Lent season every year. I love this prayer because this really speak about the most supreme love and core of the Christianity : Christ suffering. There are 14 stations: 1st Station: Jesus is condemned to death 2nd Station: Jesus carries His cross 3rd Station: Jesus falls the first time 4th Station: Jesus meets his mother 5th Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross
