Ignatius of Loyola
|A Prayer Diary||
Of all that God has shown me
I can speak just the smallest word,
Not more than a honey be
Takes on his foot
From an overspilling jar.
Mechthild of Magdeburg
…the root of all evil is arrogance…the origin, the source of all blessing is humility.
Monks of Callistus
Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you’ll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.
Thou who Thyself art everlasting Mercy, give me a tender heart to-day towards all those to whom the morning light brings less joy than it brings me.
The world is full of sadness. Let us be a singing company even though we grieve with those who are grieving.
The journey to the wellsprings of hope is really a journey toward the center, toward the innermost ground of our being where we meet and are met by God.
