|A Prayer Diary||
It is while waiting for the coming of the reign of God, Advent after Advent, that we come to realize that its coming depends on us.
Today I embrace change, and re-focus on the “great light” that is soon to “dawn” upon us, in Bethlehem.
I seemed alone with immensity, and there came at last that melting of the divine darkness into the life within me for which I prayed.
Song and Its Fountains, A.E.
There must be always remaining in every life, some place for the singing of angels, some place for that which in itself is breathlessly beautiful.
Waking up each day to the miracle of still being alive makes life a holy adventure.
Br. Curtis Almquist
Unless we are able to view things in terms of how they originate, how they are to return to their end, and how God shines forth in them, we will not be able to understand.
St. Bonaventure, quoted in www.cac.org
