Merton’s Voice: Keep your eyes clean and your ears quiet and your mind serene. Breathe God’s air. Work, if you can, under His sky.

Merton, Thomas, New Seeds of Contemplation (New York: New Directions, 1961) 86

Psalm 51: 10

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.

**

A humbled, contrite heart you will not spurn O God. (Psalm 50)

Nouwen’s Voice: Have a sense of compassion for your own journey, for your own leaving and returning; a sense of, ‘yes, yes, I’m loved when I take a risk. I’m loved even when I make a mistake because somehow, it’s an expression of my desire to claim myself. I did it in a wrong way, but I didn’t have any other way to do it at that moment’….Our God awaits us with compassion and tenderness.
