Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"If Christ is growing in us, if we are at peace, recollected, because we know that however insignificant our life seems to be, from it he is forming himself; if we go with eager will, in haste, to wherever our circumstances compel us, because we believe that he desires to be in that place, we shall find that we are driven more and more to act on the impulse of his love. And the answer we shall get from others to those impulses will be an awakening into life, or the leap into joy of the already wakened life within them." 
-- Caryll Houselander, The Reed of God

  1. Thank you so much for posting this excerpt. It was a beautiful way to start my day as I head off to work. I'll probably read it again when I get home because it has so much to think about and pray with.
