“The goodness of God is the highest object of prayer, and it reaches down to our lowest need. It quickens our soul and gives it life, and makes it grow in grace and virtue.”

— St. Julian of Norwich

“Know this: just as the wood of the ark saved the just from drowning, so too, by the mystery of His wooden Cross, does Christ, the Church’s God and King, save us from drowning in the sea of this world. In the symbol of a thing made of wood He gave human beings a foreshadowing of both the judgment to come and the salvation of the just.”

— St. Augustine

“We are creating the life we live. We are shaping our reality by what we pay attention to. All crises bring us to the same question: Will I consent to know love, whatever form it takes?”
