PROPHETIC MESSENGERS OF GOD

The dignity of the human person and the common good rank higher than the comfort of those who refuse to renounce their privileges.Credit: flickr.com/photos/catholicism/ When these values are threatened, a prophetic voice must be raised. – Pope Francis

REACHING WITHIN

Only when we have come in touch with our own life experiences and have learned to listen to our inner cravings for liberation and new life can we realize that Jesus did not just speak, but that he reached out to us in our most personal needs. -Henri Nouwen- Reaching Out

No Man is an Island

“For each one of us, there is only one thing necessary: to fulfill our own destiny, according to God’s will, to be what God wants us to be.” – Thomas Merton

“To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon the with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope; it is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds.” -Pope Francis

Our sense of self

The more we allow our accomplishments-the results of our actions-to become the criteria of our self esteem, the more we are going to walk on our spiritual toes, never sure we are going to live up to the expectations which we created by our last successes.
Henry Nouwen, Out of Solitude

Ministering to others

My work on God’s behalf must be rooted in God’s love and grace When it is thus rooted, my work will be neither compelled nor driven, nor frantic. When it is thus rooted I will once again find the balance, working with conviction and calm, trusting in God’s purposes and ways.
Arthur Boers, “Abide in Me”

Embracing The Poor

Today it is very fashionable to talk about the poor. Unfortunately it is very unfashionable to talk with them.
Mother Theresa

To be a Saint

For me to be a saint means to be myself. Therefore the problem of sanctity and salvation is in fact the problem of finding out who I am and of discovering my true self.
Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
