Solution to Loneliness

"We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community." ~ Dorothy Day


In the original language, "he gave thanks" reads "eucharisteo." . . . The root word for eucharisteo is charis, meaning "grace." Jesus took bread and saw it as grace and gave thanks. He took the bread and knew it to be gift and gave thanks." ~ Ann Voskamp


"No one gossips about other people's secret virtues."

Seeking Heart

"God’s seasons are not at your beck. If the first stroke of the flint doth not bring forth the fire, you must strike again. God will hear prayer, but He may not answer it at the time which we in our minds have appointed; He will reveal Himself to our seeking heart, but not just when and where we have settled in our expectations. Hence the need of perseverance and importunity in supplication. " ~  C.H. Spurgeon

Duty of Christians

"It is the duty of Christians to create the kingdom of God on Earth. This kingdom will exist only when we all have enough to eat, when our children, brothers, parents don’t have to die from hunger and malnutrition. That will be the “Glory,” a Kingdom for we who have never known it." ~ Rigoberta Menchu
