“A monk once asked a great spiritual master, 'Is there anything more miraculous than the wonders of creation?' The master answered: 'Yes, your awareness of the wonders of Creation.'  ” (“Passionist Series” 585)

And a big "Thank you" to Millie, Sue and Bev

would not be possible nor complete.

"Indeed, indeed we both will. I don't see how any degree of faith can exclude the dismay, since Christ's faith did not save Him from dismay in Gethsemane. We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."
