. . . If we could learn to live from that centre we should be living from the heart of life and our whole being would be moved by love.
Bede Griffiths (1906–1993)Meditations@cac.org
One way that our growth in love becomes stuck is when we identify so much with our group or country that it replaces our faith in the One God of all.
Christian, prayer is not telling God what to do, rather it is an expression of love.
Br. James Koester, SSJE
Every day that passes brings us nearer that day when we shall gather together unto Him.
As insufficient as I may be today, I know to Whom I belong, as a member, – not a stranger or sojourner, – in “the household of God.”
I realize that just as you cannot study philosophy through praying, you cannot study prayer through philosophizing.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Many mystics have exclaimed in one form or another that the most profound knowledge of God is to know God as unknowable.
If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him.
If we sincerely wish to guard our mind in the Lord, we have need of great humility, first in relation to God and, second, in relation to men.
Philotheus of Sinai
