“Holy people (saints) get into the dirt and sweat of real life, where light and darkness contend with real consequences. This is where God is at work. If the Word I hear on Sunday morning or during my private prayer has no bearing on the way I relate to family, friend, and foe, or how I make decisions, spend my resources and cast my vote, then my faith is fantasy.”
Marjorie H. Thompson
Soul Feast

“You called, you cried, you shattered my deafness. You sparkled, you blazed, you drove away my blindness. You shed your fragrance, and I drew in my breath, and I pant for you. I tasted and now I hunger and thirst. You touched me, and now I burn with longing for your peace.”
Saint Augustine
Confessions
