Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
God has no religion.
We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.
We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
Do not let Sunday be taken from you If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.
He who has no faith in others shall find no faith in them.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be the sons of God.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadow for those who don't.
To withdraw is not to run away - and to stay is no wise action - when there's more reason to fear than to hope.
Spiritual progress is like a detoxification
One of the things that is wrong with religion is that it teaches us to be satisfied with answers which are not really answers at all.
Split a piece of wood and I am there.
The lust of the flesh directs these desires [of personal union], however, to satisfaction of the body, often at the cost of a real and full communion of persons.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
