“Darkness deserves gratitude. It is the alleluia point at which we learn to understand that all growth does not take place in the sunlight.”
Joan Chittister

“Spirituality without a prayer life is no spirituality at all, and it will not last beyond the first defeats. Prayer is an opening of the self so that the Word of God can break in and make us new. Prayer unmasks. Prayer converts. Prayer impels. Prayer sustains us on the way. Pray for the grace it will take to continue what you would like to quit.”
Joan Chittister, In a High Spiritual Season

“Beware the religion that turns you against another one. It's unlikely that it's really religion at all.”
Joan D. Chittister, God Speaks in Many Tongues: Meditate with Joan Chittister
