Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

The Flagellation of Christ
MIchelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610)

And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cy'rene, who was
coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it
behind Jesus. And there followed him a great multitude of the
people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him.

Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death
with him. And when they came to the place which is called The Skull,
there they crucified him, and the criminals, one of the right and one
on the left. And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not
what they do." And they cast lots to divide his garments. And the
people stood by, watching; but the rulers scoffed at him,
saying,  He saved others; let him save himself,
if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!"

Luke 23: 26-27, 32-35
The Holy Bible
Revised Standard Edition


I think that if God forgives us
we must forgive ourselves.

C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)
Irish writer and scholar

I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd gives HIs life for the sheep.

John 10: 11
The Holy Bible
New King James Version


It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over
the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun's light
failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father,
into thy hands I commit my spirit!" And having
said this, he breathed his last. Now when
the centurion saw what had taken place,
he praised God, and said,
"Certainly this man was innocent!"

Luke 23: 44-47
The Holy Bible
Revised Standard Edition


Faith speaks God's promises of what it should be,

ignoring evidence of all it may see.

Kate Buxbaum-Prado
Excerpted from "Angel's Wings and Secret Things"

I take a sacred vow: Never shall the sun gaze of my love
sink below the horizon of my thought of Thee. Never will
I lower the vision of my lifted eyes to place it on aught but
Thee. Never will I do anything that reminds not of Thee.

Paramahansa Yogananda
From "Whispers from Eternity"


And now, the Last Word:

This is my commandment, that you love one
another as I have loved you. Greater love
has no one than this, that someone lay down
his life for his friends. You are my friends
if you do what I command you.

John 15: 12-14
The Holy Bible
English Standard Version
