Quote of the Day – Saturday of Advent – 19 December
“I speak out in order to lead Him
into your hearts
but He does not choose to come
where I lead Him,
unless you prepare the way for Him.”
St Augustine (354-430)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“Unreasoning and stupid
that you look for God where He is not!
Listen and be filled with awe –
God is in our hearts, I know it.
God lives in the human heart
when this heart lives withdrawn
from all that is not Him,
when this heart heeds God’s knock
at it’s door (Rv 3,20) and,
sweeping and cleaning all its rooms,
makes itself ready to welcome Him
who alone truly satisfies.”
Saint Raphael Arnaiz Baron (1911-1938)
Spanish Trappist monk (Spiritual writings)
