Quote/s of the Day – 5 December – Tuesday of the First Week of Advent
“Advent is here!
What a marvellous time in which to renew your desire,
your nostalgia, your real longing for Christ to come —
for Him to come every day to your soul in the Eucharist.
The Church encourages us: Ecce veniet! — He is about to arrive!”
St Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975) – The Forge, 548
“Into this world, this demented inn
in which there is absolutely no room for Him at all,
Christ comes uninvited.”
Thomas Merton (1915-1968)
“We need to find God and He cannot 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, how they move in silence…
We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
