INCANDESCENT POWER

Think of yourself as an incandescent power, illuminated and forever talked to by God and God’s messengers.

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting.

BY GOD’S WILL

The seeds that are planted in my liberty at every moment, by God’s wlll, are the seeds of my own identity, my own reality, my own happiness, my own sanctity To refuse them is to refuse everything; it is the refusal of my own existence and being: of my identity, my very self.

-Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation, page 33

RENEWAL

I love people. I love my family, my children…but inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that’s where you renew your springs that never dry up.

– Pearl S. Buck, Novelist

JOY

Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God.

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

ALL SHOULD BE MINISTERS

God says: I have willed that one should need another and that all should be my ministers in distributing the graces and gifts they have received from me.

– St. Catherine of Siena

WONDROUS

From the greatness and beauty of created things comes a corresponding perception of their creator.

Wisdom 13:5

LISTENING PRAYER

Scripture, meditation, reflections and more found here

God of words and silence, we ask for the gift of listening. Our world and our minds are noisy.  We struggle to sit in quiet and wait upon your word.

Help us to trust that you will speak your will to us in the silence of our listening prayer.

– Bishop Robert Morneau

YOU ARE TREASURED

You cannot imagine at all how much you interest God; he is interested in you as if there were no one else  on earth.

-Julien Green, French Writer

THE GIFT OF ENCOURAGEMENT

There are people whose presence is encouraging. One of the most beautiful gifts in the world is the gift of encouragement.

When someone encourages you, that person helps you over a threshold you might otherwise never have crossed on your own.

– John O’Donohue
