The glory of God is a human being fully alive; and to be alive consists in beholding God.

A Daily Dose Wednesday, June 27, 2012


Joy is really a road sign pointing us to God. Once we have found God...we no longer need to trouble ourselves so much about the quest for joy.

C. S. Lewis

Romans 14:17-18

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of food and drink, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit;whoever serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by others.

A Daily Dose Tuesday, June 26, 2012


Be an instructor in the art of forgiveness, I pray.

Because it goes against human nature, forgiveness must be taught and practiced as one would practice any difficult craft.

Philip Yancey

Luke 7:47

So I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven; hence, she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.

A Daily Dose Monday, June 25, 2012


Hate is like burning down your house to get rid of a rat.

The sound of 'gentle stillness' after all the thunder and wind have passed will be the ultimate Word from God. Jim Elliot

Psalm 46:11

Be still and know that I am God!

A Daily Dose Saturday, June 23, 2012


We are at Jesus' disposal. If he wants you to be sick in bed, if he wants you to proclaim His work in the street, if he wants you to clean the toilets all day, that's all right, everything is all right. We must say, "I belong to you. You can do whatever you like." And this is our strength, and this is the joy of the Lord.

Blessed Mother Teresa

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me. Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

A Daily Dose Friday, June 22, 2012


There is more value in a little study of humility and in a single act of it than in all the knowledge in the world.
St. Teresa of Avila

Philippians 2:3-5

Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves, each looking out not for his own interests, but also everyone for those of others.Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus.

A Daily Dose Thursday, June 21, 2012


So we must not only speak gently to our neighbor, but we must be filled, heart and soul, with gentleness; and we must not merely seek the sweetness of aromatic honey in courtesy and suavity with strangers, but also the sweetness of milk among those of our own household and our neighbors; a sweetness terribly lacking to some who are as angels abroad and devils at home!St. Francis de Sales

Hebrews 13:1-2, 6

Let mutual love continue.

Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.

Thus we may say with confidence: “The Lord is my helper, and I will not be afraid.

What can anyone do to me?”

A Daily Dose Wednesday, June 20, 2012


O Breath of God, blow softly on the gifts that have weakened or grown stale in my life. Stir up the flame of my original love, faith and hope. Breathe on me anew.

Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, O.S.B

Proverbs 2:6-10

For the LORD gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; He has success in store for the upright, is the shield of those who walk honestly, guarding the paths of justice, protecting the way of his faithful ones

Then you will understand what is right and just, what is fair, every good path; for wisdom will enter your heart, knowledge will be at home in your soul

A Daily Dose Tuesday, June 19, 2012


You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them.

St. Therese of Lisieux

Malachi 3:17-18

They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, my own special possession, on the day when I take action. And I will have compassion on them, as a man has compassion on his son who serves him.

Then you will again distinguish between the just and the wicked, between the person who serves God, and the one who does not.

No one heals himself by wounding another.

St. Ambrose

All of us can attain to Christian virtue and holiness, no matter in what condition of life we live and no matter what our life work may be.

St. Francis de Sales

Sirach 2:10-11

Consider the generations long past and see: has anyone trusted in the Lord and been disappointed? Has anyone persevered in his fear and been forsaken? Has anyone called upon him and been ignored?

For the Lord is compassionate and merciful; forgives sins and saves in time of trouble.


A Daily Dose Saturday, June 16, 2012


You cannot please both God and the world at the same time. They are utterly opposed to each other in their thoughts, their desires, and their actions.

St. John Vianney

Matthew 12:30

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

A Daily Dose Friday, June 15, 2012


With each passing day I realize more how much he lives in me, and how great a shadow he casts over my life. It is the same for all men. None of us can escape this shadow of the father.

Kent Nerburn

Colossians 3:1-4

If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.Think of what is above, not of what is on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ your life appears, then you too will appear with him in glory.

The way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a serpent upon a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a woman.

A Daily Dose Tuesday, June 12, 2012


Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly. St. Ignatius of Loyola

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

A Daily Dose Sunday, June 10, 2012
