“Oh, to become a pure pool like the Virgin, water that lost the semblances of water and was a sky like God.”
– Jessica Powers –
“Unless we are anchored in something beyond the here and now, chances are we will drown in the present moment. . . . In my experience, the extraordinary people I have known and admired all have had the same secret: they prayed.”
– Ron Rolheiser –
“Prayer is essentially God’s work. Our part is to give time, do our best to keep attention, surrender ourselves as best we can. Then we can be sure that God works. Faith does not ask for signs, for tokens. When we really grasp that prayer is essentially God’s business, not ours, we will never talk of failure, no matter how unsatisfactory prayer seems to us.”
– Ruth Burrows –
“When God is communicating himself to the soul, the mind’s natural field of vision has too narrow a range, and we have to engage by believing, not by focusing. Were faith to open us merely to a world of sharper ideas or more vivid impressions, then its light would indeed look bright. As it opens us to God, its light blinds us. Faith, then, is dark, not because God is distant, but because he is eye-close, soul-close.”
– Iain Matthew –
“Believe that He loves you, that He wants to help you in the struggles you have to undergo. Believe in His love, His exceeding love.”
– St Elizabeth of the Trinity –
“The deepest reason why so few of us are saints is because we will not let God love us.”  
– Ruth Burrows –
“O souls, created for these grandeurs and called to them! What are you doing? How are you spending your time?”
– St John of the Cross –
“Whatever the past, or my fears of the future, here and now, O Holy Spirit, utter within me the total ‘Yes’ of Jesus to the Father.”
– Sister Wendy Beckett –
“When you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been and how much you planned that has gone undone and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God’s hands and leave it with Him.”
– St Edith Stein –
“The most profound expression we can give to faith is to set aside an inviolable time each day, no matter how short, when we deliberately affirm God’s absolute love for me here and now and that we stay there in blind trusting faith, receiving it.”
