Subject: Quotations and Pages
Thank you so much for another enriching afternoon.
As promised, here are the quotations:
“God will bring people and events into our lives and whatever we may think about them, they are designed for the evolution of His life in us.”
– Thomas Keating, Rising Tide of Silence DVD
My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain
where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,
and that I think I am following your will
does not mean I am actually doing so.
But I believe
the desire to please you
does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire
in all I am doing.
I will never do anything
apart from that desire.
And I know if I do this
you will lead me by the right road
though I may know nothing about it.
I will trust you always
though I may seem to be lost
and in the shadow of death.
I will not fear,
for you will never leave me
to face my perils alone.
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude
Next week we’ll be reading from page 129 to the end of the first paragraph on page 136.
May we have peace of mind and heart
Love & blessings
