Quote for Equus Passage 7/9

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John Southard

This quote came by way of a friend, Terry Feuka. She is the Sustaining Pastoral Excellence Resource Center Program Director and Media Specialist at St. Francis Retreat Center…and the best reference/library person ever! I’ve thrown her some pretty obscure requests over the years and she always comes through with the materials. Check out SPE at the link above, and visit the resource center when you come to the Catholic Writers Guild writers’ retreat in October, 2013.

Equus Passage 6/18

Sacrifice is not about giving up things. As Fr. Cameron wrote, it is about doing whatever we can to generate as much love as we can…it is the way we eagerly adjust our lives so that our greatest desires for love come true.

 

(Father Peter John Cameron, OP. Jesus, Present Before Me; Meditations for Eucharistic Adoration, Servant Books, 1991, p.34)

 

 

Equus Passage 6/4

Your most fundamental obedience to God may be acceptance of yourself – yourself as you are, with all your particular strengths and weaknesses, your gifts and limitations, all the baggage you carry from your remote and immediate past, all that your life has made you.  This person is what God wants, and you must want it too; but such obedience is not a static program, because it (also) means consenting to become through God’s grace the person he wants you to become.

The Oblate Life, p. 174, Maria Boulding
