Lent--God's Voice


I can either run away, and drown out God's voice with my own,

or I can listen,

and let Him tell me

where I have gone

                                 off the path.

I can either insist that

                                                              I am right,

or I can learn

from God's

                                                                                                                        still, small voice.

I can either distract myself

with dreams

                         of my own


I can stop

         in my tracks,

                                 cover my face,

         and say,

"Lord, I am not worthy,

that You

should come under my roof.

Speak but the word,

and my soul


be healed.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
