"The whole trouble is that -- literally -- we do not know what is good for us; and what makes the trouble still worse is that we think we do. We have our own plans for our happiness, and too often we merely regard God as somebody who will help us to accomplish them. The true state of affairs is just the opposite. God has His plans for our happiness, and He is waiting for us to help Him to accomplish them. And let us be quite clear about it: We cannot improve on God's plans." This Tremendous Lover, M. Eugene Boylan, O.C.R.

New Life

As the Church is again filled with new life this Pentecost, I am hoping that this blog will be too! We are taking our little basil plant to church today to be blessed, as the traditional color for Pentecost in the East is green-for new life.
