Today is a day of quiet waiting. An ancient homily for today says, “The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep.” Such is the truth. Such is the fear. Such is the hope.

-from Sacred Silence


“O man, when the world hates you and is faithless toward you, think of your God, how he was struck and spat upon. You should not accuse your neighbor of guilt, but pray to God that he be merciful to you both.”

— St. Nicholas of Flue


In the midst of a world that seems hopeless, the Cross appears as a sign that God’s love, forgiveness and mercy overcomes all evil.
