thirst

Daily Catholic Quote from Pope St. John Paul II

“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed […]

“Begin with the beautiful, which leads you to the good, which leads you to the truth. Once you are captivated by the winsomeness of the beautiful, you are drawn to the good. You wonder, ‘How do I participate in the life that made this beauty possible?’ Once we live that life of goodness, we realize the truth of it.” (Father […]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God… to be alone with Him — not with our books, thoughts, and memories but completely stripped of everything — to dwell lovingly in His presence, silent, empty, expectant, and motionless.

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst…’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe?

Fr. Robert Barron

“One of the most fundamental problems in the spiritual order is that we sense within ourselves the hunger for God, but we attempt to satisfy it with some created good that is less than God. Thomas Aquinas said that the four typical substitutes for God are wealth, pleasure, power, and honor. Sensing the void within, we attempt to fill it […]

Encountering the Word – Psalm 84:2-5

"King David in Prayer" by Pieter de Grebber

How lovely your dwelling, O Lord of hosts! My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the Lord. My heart and flesh cry out for the living God. As the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest to settle her young, my home is by your altars, Lord of hosts, my king and my God! Happy are those who dwell in your […]

Reflections on My Golden Jubilee

My Golden Jubilee by Sister Timothy Marie, O.C.D. “When I see the sisters, with their years of toil etched into their faces, I can’t help but wonder the stories hidden behind each veil, each habit, each expressive face. Where did these sisters come from? Where were they born? Why did they enter the convent? And what made them stay? I […]
