|A Prayer Diary||
A sunrise to die for, and live for.
Lent is not a ‘penitential season.’ It requires us to determine what is worth dying for in our own lives and what it may be necessary for us to become if we really want to live.
Time is what keeps the light from reaching us. There is no greater obstacle to God than time.

John Davies in Lent and Easter Readings from Iona
Everything comes from God, created anew at every moment. If there were not this constantly renewed creation, everything would sink into nothingness.
Bede Griffiths in Return to the Center
The supreme goal of prayer is to express God, to discover the self in relation to God.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
There is an inability to realize that the presence of a person who is in love with God is enough, and that nothing else is needed.

The simplest and greatest ministry, which Jesus gives to all his followers, is, “Love God and love your neighbor.”
