"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."
-- Abbé Monchanin

Quote for the Day

"If Jesus of Nazareth was God become truly man for us, as I believe he was, then we should be able to walk on water, to heal the sick, even to accept the Father's answer to our prayers when it is not the answer that we hope for, when it is NO. Jesus begged in anguish that he be spared the bitter cup, and then humbly added, 'But not as I will, Father; as you will.'"
-- Madeleine L'Engle
