A quote I need today…

Filed under: books,quotes — 12:36 pm

“Do we cry with each other and support each other in the
frustration of our incompleteness or do we give each other the
impression that there is something wrong with us because our lives
are inconsummate and our symphonies are incomplete?

“Do we still take our longings and emptiness to God in prayer or do we
demand that life gives us, here and now, the full symphony?

“Do we lovingly and gratefully receive the spirit of our own lives,
despite the tensions, or do we live in angry jealousy?

“Are we loving against an infinite horizon or is our eros directed
only towards the concrete sweetening of life?”

Forgotten Among the Lilies, Ronald Rolheiser
