We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.
The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me.
There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.
God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk.
Every creature is a word of God.
One person who has mastered life is better than a thousand persons who have mastered only the contents of books, but no one can get anything out of life without God.
What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.
The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge.
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
