He who bears God in his heart, carries his paradise with him everywhere.
St. Ignatius of Loyola
When you recognize God as Creator, you will admire him.
When you recognize his wisdom, you will learn from him.
When you discover his strength, you will rely on him.
But only when he saves you will you worship him.
A physician once said, "The best medicine for humans is love."
Someone asked, "What if it doesn't work?"
He smiled and said, "Increase the dose."
If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being,
let me do it now, and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
put aside your busyness for a while
take refuge for a time
from your troublesome thoughts;
throw away your cares,
let your burdensome worries wait.
Take time off for God;
rest for a while in Him.
St Anselm (c. 1033-1109)
36th Archbishop of Canterbury
Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father.
His words can renew your spirit.
No one knows you and your needs like He does.
Janet L. Weaver
Have you ever thought what a wonderful privilege it is
that every one each day and each hour of the day
has the liberty of asking God to meet him
in the inner chamber and to hear what He has to say?
We need to find God, and he can't be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature -trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon, and the sun, see how they move in silence.
We need silence to be able to touch souls.
God didn't want me to do more for Him.
He wanted me to be more with Him.
We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught,
but after spending time alone with God,
we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.
They are but trifles, to be sure, but,
scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
