I woke straight out of a sound sleep the other night with a terrible ache in my chest and the conviction that if I didn’t get to hug Sophie, our nine-year-old grand-daughter, very soon,  I would . . . well, die. It was that simple and that serious.  I desperately wanted to hug them all—our three grandsons, our great nieces and nephews, the little kids next door.  And not only that.  I was aching t

“PRACTICE Today, wear your oldest and least presentable clothes, no matter what's on the schedule. Notice how people react. Think about what it is like to move about in a consumerist society when you cannot afford to keep up appearances. Pray for awareness regarding your own sense of self-worth when you are not “looking your best.” Ask to be freed up from this unnecessary self-preoccupation. Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them. (Lk 12:27)”

“Wednesday: Pray for Strangers You See throughout This Day One of the elders said: Just as a bee, wherever she goes, makes honey, so a monk, wherever he goes, if he goes to do the will of God, can always produce the spiritual sweetness of good works.5”
Paula Huston, Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit

“Instead of humbly following along behind Jesus, I've let myself get sidetracked by a myriad of temptations: overly ambitious creative projects, delusions about my own importance, worrisome relationships, secret small addictions, stubborn resentments, and a hundred forms of self-indulgence.”
Paula Huston, Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit
