"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

Speaking of reading the Bible:
"The fool falls into the temptation of saying, 'I already know this text!' The wise one knows that it is one thing to know the chemical formula of water and another to savor it by a spring on a summer's day."-- M. Basil Pennington Lectio Divina

Based upon the greater importance placed upon insurance company profits over affordable health care for all citizens in the current debate, it is appropriate that the phrase "In God We Trust" is emblazoned upon our currency. Money is truly the god of the USA today.
We venerate the profits while castigating the prophets. May the God of all creation have mercy upon us and lead us to repentance.
