A Quote by unknown on god, sacredness, spirituality, christianity, truth, freedom, love, and peace

Without temptation it is impossible to aquire a strong constitution of the soul.  But again, to withstand them is not in our power.  How could perishable clay withstand the action of water unless Divine fire makes it strong?  If we submit to the yoke of God's will and pray with constant desire and humility, then, through patience, we also shall recieve everything form our Lord Jesus Christ.

Monks Callistus and Ignatius, from the Philokalia

Christ, invisible to the bodily eye, manifests Himself on earth clearly through His Church ... The Church is the Body of Christ both because its parts are united to Christ through His divine mysteries and because through her Christ works in the world.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on earth, environment, humanity, spirituality, sacredness, divinity, presence, breathing, and breath

The Earth with its layers of land and water and air provides the space within which all living things are nurtured and the context within which humans attain their identity. If in the excitement of a secular technology reverence for the Earth has diminished in the past, especially in the western world, humans now experience a sudden shock at the devastation they have wrought on their own habitation. The ancient human-Earth relationship must be recovered in a new context, in its mystical as well as in its physical functioning. There is need for awareness that the mountains and rivers and all living things, the sky and its sun and moon and clouds all constitute a healing, sustaining sacred presence for humans which they need as much for their psychic integrity as for their physical nourishment. This presence whether experienced as Allah, as Atman, as Sunyata, or as the Buddha-nature or as Bodhisattva; whether as Tao or as the One or as the Divine Feminine, is the atmosphere in which humans breathe deepest and without which they eventually suffocate.
