Reframing Heroism: Not What You Might Think

“Go big or go home” is an attitude a lot of us grew up with. As a cradle Catholic, I’m sure I knew, deep-down, that Jesus’ teachings didn’t exactly support that message. But the glamor of shiny, bullet-deflecting bracelets and invisible jets tended to tweak my childhood interest a tad more than things like washing my friends’ feet or going last. Such is the concrete mind of a young child. (Althoug

"The first thing that struck me in the book A Mouse and a Miracle was the gorgeous illustrations. The artists skillfully employed closeups, shading, and even diffusion in the pictures that enhanced the storytelling.

Anaïs Nin
“I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don't know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness. In reality those who satisfy me are those who simply allow me to live with my ''idea of them.”
Anais Nin

Emily Dickinson
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson

G.K. Chesterton
“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate. This gives to the typically Christian pleasure in this earth a strange touch of lightness that is almost frivolity. Nature was a solemn mother to the worshipers of Isis and Cybele. Nature was a solemn mother to Wordsworth or to Emerson. But Nature is not solemn to Francis of Assisi or to George Herbert. To St. Francis, Nature is a sister, and even a younger sister: a little, dancing sister, to be laughed at as well as loved.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Alfonso María de Liguori
“In short, so great is God's love for you that He seems to love no one but you. And therefore, you should love no one but Him.*”
Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, How to Converse With God

“I used to ask God to help me, Now I ask how I might help Him.”
