Cool! Thanks for linking back, and for your lovely message =) here’s the excellent article it came from.
You may like these quotes from Oscar Wilde too:
“The Catholic Church is for saints and sinners alone. For respectable people the Anglican Church will do.”
[That reminds me of Christopher Dawson (1889-1970), an eminent Catholic historian who had converted to Catholicism even though his mother was angry because Dawson “would be worshipping with the help.”]
“Ah! Happy they whose hearts can break
And peace of pardon win!
How else may man make straight his plan
And cleanse his soul from Sin?
How else but through a broken heart
May Lord Christ enter in?”
—The Ballad of Reading Gaol
Blessed feast of the Immaculate Heart!
Thank you for your beautiful message! Thank you for all the wisdom you share at catholicsplash — it is a joy to follow your blog too =)
Blessed Feast of the Immaculate Heart!
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Heart of Jesus, fount of life and holiness, have mercy on us.
It’d be great to see whose out there for myself and others in a similar position! There’s at least got to be one…
Peace in Christ, C. Martin.
I’m living with the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate in Perth in 12 days’ time, to discern with them! =D (just need to survive my final exams first)
By the way, have I asked whether you (catholicsplash) are going to the Australian Catholic Students Assn Conference in Melbourne from July 6-8? 8)
