hanks to Lee Zacharias for a great review of A Flower More Enduring on Good Reads.

“The poet desires not the beauty of the cultivated flower, but the heart of the weed, favored less by adults but prized by the child, who blows its puffball to the wind, which will carry it to seed itself again and again. This is a book that chooses to be a dandelion among the dahlias. This is a book that everyone who is searching for an answer to a “impossible prayer” should read. “

“Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do.”

— St. Thomas Aquinas

**

“One of the most formidable obstacles to the conversion of a soul is the fact that God is a hidden God: Deus absconditus. But God, in His goodness, reveals Himself, in a certain manner, through His saints, and even through fervent souls. In this way, the supernatural filters through and becomes visible to the faithful, who are thus able to apprehend something of the mystery of God . . . make no mistake, there is a sort of instinct by which souls, without clearly defining what it is they sense, are aware of this radiation of the supernatural.”

— Dom Jean-Baptist Chautard
