Deep Wells of Strength

Few men [or women] during their lifetimes come anywhere near exhausting the resources dwelling within them. There are deep wells of strength that are never used.

– Richard Byrd


The Well is Deep

There is a really deep well inside me. And in it dwells God. Sometimes I am there too. But more often stones and grit block the well, and God is buried beneath. Then God must be dug out again.

– Etty Hillesum, from The Letters and Diaries of Etty Hillesum 1941-1943

Drawing Water with Joy

Drawing water from the well at St. Dominic’s birthplace

Wednesday’s Responsorial Psalm is from one of the Canticles of Isaiah (Isaiah 12:2-6)

God is indeed my savior; I am confident and unafraid.
My strength and my courage is God, who has been my savior.
With joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.”
