One more saying that I keep handy when I feel like I am shutting out the world, and then feel guilty about it:

Charles de Foucald, founder of the Little Brothers and Sisters of Jesus, said: "One must pass through solitude and dwell in it to receive Godís grace. It is there that one empties oneself, that one drives before oneself all that is not God, and that one completely empties this little house of our soul to leave room for God alone. In doing this, do not fear being unfaithful toward creatures. On the contrary, that is the only way for you to serve them effectively" (Raphael Brown, Franciscan Mystic, p. 126).

Here is today's "Reflection of the Saints":

I am a Catholic man and a priest; in that Faith I have lived, and in that Faith do I intend to die. If you esteem my Religion treason, then I am guilty.

Ė St. Edmund Campion

JS -- I've never heard the above quote. I like it, but I hope none of us here are called to be "traitors" in the future.

Eternity,

I am with you! I am so grateful to be living in a time and place where we can be Catholic without persecution.

"They want me to write differently. Certainly I could, but I must not. God has chosen me from thousands and given me, of all people, this talent. It is to Him that I must give account. How then would I stand there before Almighty God, if I followed the others and not Him?"

~Anton Bruckner

"If you want to be a prophet; if you want to follow Christ: Prepare to look good on wood"
