“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”

— St. Therese of Lisieux


“Gathering the ordinary teaches when enough is enough and allows our senses to be fed with simplicity. We view life with eyes of wonder and awe, and we care for one another with reverence. We discover how to be humble and simple of heart. Humility and ordinariness flow with rich spiritual wisdom.”

—from Your Spiritual Garden: Tending to the Presence of God


“When we generously accept God’s Word, especially in the Commandments, we are doing God’s Will in all things. To live the Will of God is the greatest sacrifice and personal denial.”

— Rev. Thomas J. Donaghy
