It Takes Time


“For a stalk to grow or a flower to open there must be timePregnantImpatientlywaiting that cannot be forced; nine months must go by for the birth of a human child; to write a book or compose music often years must be dedicated to patient research. To find the mystery there must be patience, interior purification, silence, waiting.

                                        -Pope John Paul II

Section Five:     The Perils of Worldly Attachments

“In this world we must not become attached to anything – not even things the most innocent, for they fail us at the moment when we are least expecting it.  The eternal alone can satisfy us.”

                                                                          -St. Therese of Lisieux
