The Last Word

The first fresh hour of every morning should be dedicated to the Lord, whose mercy gladdens it with golden light.

Charles Spurgeon

The Last Word

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi

The Last Word

I cannot think that when God sent us into the world, he had irreversibly decreed that we should be perpetually miserable in it. If our taking up the Cross imply our bidding adieu to all joy and satisfaction, how is it reconcilable with what Solomon expressly affirms of religion, that ‘her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace?’

John Wesley

The Last Word

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.

St. Jerome

 

The Last Word

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Edmund Burke

The Last Word

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

St. Francis of Assisi
