I Stand at the Door

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Love Begets Love

“God loves what in us is not yet. 
What has still to come to birth. 
What we love in a person is what already is: 
virtue, beauty, courage, and hence our love is self-interested and fragile. 
God, loving what is not yet and putting faith in us, continually begets us since love is what begets. By giving us confidence, God helps us to be born, since love is what helps us emerge from our darkness and draws us to the light. 
And this is such a fine thing to do that God invites us to do the same.”

More Like Jesus

When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none.  
Then it says, 'I will return to the person I came from.'  
So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order.  
Then the spirit finds even other spirits more evil than itself, 
and they all enter the person and live there."
Matthew 12:43-45

The Importance of Words

"It is never my custom to use words lightly.  If 27 years in prison have done anything to us, it was to use the silence of solitude to make us understand how precious words are and how real speech is in its impact on the way people live and die." -Nelson Mandel

A Riddle

Do you know the answer to this riddle. . . .

              "What is greater than God,
                more evil than the devil, 
                the poor have it, 
                the rich need it, 
                and if you eat it you will die?"  -- from Our Daily Bread
