Father,
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you;
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.

Blessed Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916)


___________


For all that has been -- Thanks.
For all that will be -- Yes.

Dag Hammarskjold (1905-1961)
Swedish diplomat; second Secretary-
General of the United Nations




To possess Him Who cannot be understood is to
renounce the desire of all that can be understood.
To rest in Him who is beyond all created rest, we
renounce the desire to rest in created things.

Be renouncing the world we conquer the world,
rise above its multiplicity and recapitulate it in
the simplicity of a love which finds all things in God.

This is what Jesus meant when He said that any one
who would save his life will lose it, and he who would
lose his life, for the sake of God, would save it.

From "Thoughts in Solitude,"
by Thomas Merton
Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1999

We are not human beings have a spiritual experience.
We are spiritual beings have a human experience.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955)
Priest, paleontologist and philosopher
