Merton’s Voice:

We could not seek God unless He were seeking us. We may begin to seek Him in desolation, feeling nothing but His absence. But the mere fact that we seek Him proves that we have already found Him.

A Merton Reader, ed. by Thomas P.  McDonnell, (New York: Image Books, 1989) 134

Psalm 105: 4-5

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually. Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered.

**

Jesus said,’ If I were to seek my own glory that would be no glory at all; my glory is conferred by the Father’. (John 8 )

Nouwen’s Voice:

A grateful life is one in which we receive our gifts from God and then lift them up, trusting that they will multiply. That’s what Jesus did.
