Breath of Life
“I assure you that God is much better than you believe. He is content with a glance, a sigh of love."

“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.”– Ruth Burrows –
“Prayer belongs to all: To people of all religions, And probably also to those that don’t profess any. Prayer is born in the secret of ourselves, in that interior place that spiritual authors often call ‘the heart.’ Therefore to pray is not something peripheral to us, It is not something secondary or marginal in us, But it is the most intimate mystery in us. It is this mystery that prays.”– Pope Francis –
