St John of the cross

As you may know by now, I love quotes. Not only do I find them instructive, I also find them life-giving. As you begin another week, may you reflect on a few of these moving thoughts, written by St John of the Cross.

  • He who interrupts the course of his spiritual exercises and prayer is like a man who allows a bird to escape from his hand; he can hardly catch it again.

  •  If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark.
  •   In tribulation immediately draw near to God with confidence, and you will receive strength, enlightenment, and instruction.
  •  Abide in peace, banish cares, take no account of all that happens, and you will serve God according to his good pleasure and rest in him.

May the peace of Christ abide with you today.

Living in Grace
