“Just trust God. God will provide. Even tomorrow what will happen we don’t know. Believe there is God. God doesn’t always give happy feelings. But in the end we are looking to eternal life. Cooperate and trust and believe. Trust the community and trust God and trust yourself and go day by day and it will take you to the end. You are thinking too much. We don’t know what the future will be.”

Quote

“Thoughts are swirling around in my head — actions and prayer around water, air, soil, children, women. But how to narrow all the possibilities into one meaningful prayer and one meaningful practice that will carry me through the days of Lent? This will take more quiet, more prayer, some conversation with a soul mate.”

“Through the Gospel stories, we participate in the Last Supper, walk the Way of the Cross and witness the crucifixion of Jesus. In doing so, we touch into the raw grief of acknowledging the presence of death in our lives and the life of the world’s people.”

“I believe Mother Theodore’s treasures were these: steadfast belief in Providence; an enduring and practical love of people – especially her sisters; and a sense of this place, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, as the deep well from which she drank in the presence, strength, and elaborate beauty of God.”
