Catholic Quote of the Day — from Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, SJ


“God is not waiting around to get even with people for things that they have done fifteen years before. God is gentle and humble of heart; unconditionally good and loving. Therefore we do not need to cower and grovel before God’s will. We need to trust in it; trust in its awesome beauty, its unconditional power to bring goodness out of seeming limitless diversity of so many people’s lives; trust in the affection that the Hebrew prophets termed ‘hesed we emet’ (a parent’s love for a child).” (Fr. Robert Spitzer, SJ, Healing the Culture, Ignatius)

Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, SJ, Ph.D., is president of the Magis Center.
