A few more striking quotes from the last few days on my desk calendar:

"Seeing the sun, the moon, and the stars, I said to myself, 'Who could be the Master of these beautiful things?' I felt a great desire to see him, to know him, and to pay him homage." (Saint Josephine Bakhita)

"After his ascension, Christ lives up in heaven, but he proceeds to live in us, his body on earth. And we, his body, live on earth; but in him, our head, we live in heaven." (Adrienne Von Speyr)

"The country in which I live is not my native country; that lies elsewhere, and it must always be the center of my longings." (Saint Therese of Lisieux)
