OUR BLESSED MOTHER

The more the church models her life on Mary, the more maternal she becomes and the more a believer can be reborn of God in her and achieve reconciliation.

– Brother Roger Schutz

SEARCHING WITHIN

Stand at the cross and hear God's voice.

‘Is this life I am living the same as the life that wants to live in me? ”

Parker J. Palmer, Let Your Life Speak

MAY GOODNESS SURROUND ME

May the house wherein I dwell be blessed; May good thoughts here possess me;

May my path in life be straight and true; My dreams as here I lie be joyous;

All above, below, about me, May the house I love be hallowed.

– Anonymous

HAPPINESS

The happiness you are seeking, the happiness you have a right to enjoy, has a name and a face: it is Jesus of Nazareth.

-Pope Benedict XVI

 

THE WONDER OF LIFE

Teach us that even as the wonder of the stars in the heavens only reveals itself in the silence of

the night, so the wonder of life reveals itself in the silence of the heart. In the silence of our

heart we may see the scattered leaves of all the universe bound by love.

from The Bhagavad Gita

INCANDESCENT POWER

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

– Brenda Ueland

BEAUTY

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

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

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
