“Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
— St. Francis of Assisi

  MEDITATION OF THE DAY

“No one denies what everyone knows, for nature herself teaches it: that God is the Creator of the universe, and that it is good, and that it belongs to humanity by the free gift of its Creator. But there is a vast difference between the corrupted state and the state of primal purity, just as there is a vast difference between Creator and the corruptor. … We ourselves, though we’re guilty of every sin, are not just a work of God: we’re image. Yet we have cut ourselves off from our Creator in both soul and body. Did we get eyes to serve lust, the tongue to speak evil, ears to hear evil, a throat for gluttony, a stomach to be gluttony’s ally, hands to do violence,  feet for an erring life? Was the soul put in the body to think up traps, fraud, and injustice? I don’t think so.”
— Tertullian
