|A Prayer Diary||
A saint is not so much a man who realizes that he possess virtues and sanctity as one who is overwhelmed by the sanctity of God. God is holiness.
…vocation means finding a purpose for being in the world that is related to the purposes of God.
Until we know we’re a beloved son or beloved daughter or even just beloved, we don’t have anything to say….The only purpose of the gospel, and even religion, is to communicate that one and eternal truth.
God’s unifying grace helps me not be distracted by harmful comparisons or preoccupations with others, whatever they may be doing, or how they may be doing it, whether sincerely or otherwise.
You don’t have to be peculiar to find God, but you have to make a willed commitment to make Him the center of your life, all aspects of it.
Naturally, prayer is not practical, it is absurd; we have to realize that prayer is stupid from the ordinary common-sense point of view.
Jesus invites his followers to travel light, to not overburden themselves with extras, to trust instead the generosity of the local communities to care for them.
Oh, light eternal, who only abides in yourself, only yourself can comprehend and, of yourself comprehended and your self comprehending, do love and smile.
Dante, Paradiso, Canto 33
