guest

A Quote by Daniel G. Aerakis on home, happiness, guest, heart, joy, life, purification, celebration, repentence, and cleansing

When you are about to have a celebration in your home or to receive an official person, you clean your home with great care and you decorate it.  You especially fix up the living room, where the guest will sit.  So how is it possible to receive in the home of your soul the great Visitor, our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, with out first cleaning the living room of your soul with the broom of sincere repentance, without washing it with tears of contrition?  Adorn your soul, then approach the Holy Cup to receive and welcome the Lord.

A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on devil, house, empty, door, and guest

The devils enter uninvited when the house stands empty. For other kinds of guests, you have to first open the door.

Dag Hammarskjold (1905 - 1961)
