Sometimes I just have to repeat myself. I was browsing through my journal last night and came across this quote from Caryll Houselander which I love. I know I posted it awhile ago, but maybe your memory is like mine and you won’t mind reading–and pondering–it again.
I often think that the ideal of our perfection that we set up, and often go through torture to achieve, may not be God’s idea of how He wants us to be at all. That may be something quite different that we never would have thought of, and what seems like a failure to us may really be something bringing us closer to His will for us. (Caryll Houselander, quoted in Caryll Houselander, That Divine Eccentric by Maisie Ward)
Also . . . I just put up a new homily by Fr. Ken McKenna (at “Other Talks” at the “Talks” tab). You can also listen to it here: “Pure Faith, Hope, and Love.” If you haven’t listened to him before, free up ten minutes and give yourself a little treat.
