Helen Keller’s Words of Wisdom

So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.

– Helen Keller

So much has been given to me!

So much has been given to me!

Wisdom from Thomas Merton

We have what we seek. It is there all the time, and if we give it time it will make itself known to us.

– Thomas Merton

Seeking God

You seek for God, beloved soul, and he is everywhere, everything speaks of him, everything offers him to you, he walks beside you, he surrounds you and is within you. He lives with you and yet you try to find him. You seek your own idea of God, although you have him in his reality.

– Jean Pierre de Caussade, from Abandonment to Divine Providence

What speaks to you of God?

What speaks to you of God?

The Beautiful San Francisco Bay

Today is the last day of the Church Year, since tomorrow is the First Sunday of Advent. Our Psalm today is Psalm 95, and we read:

For the Lord is a great God,
 and a great ruler above all gods;
In God’s hands are the depths of the earth,
   and the tops of the mountains.
The sea belongs to God, the Creator
   and the dry land, which God’s hands have formed.
