'The Holy Ghost does not stop at merely forbidding us to take and to covet the wealth of our neighbour -- He does not wish us even to consider it or dwell upon it, lest we should want to lay our hands upon it.'

St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney, the Cure of Ars

'Your cross is indeed great! Thanks to our only Good, Who holds you on the cross! O beloved cross! O holy cross, tree of life, whence springs eternal life, I salute thee, I embrace thee, I press thee to my heart! Ah! these are the sentiments which ought to animate us in our trials. Courage, then! Courage! Under so heavy a weight human nature will waver, it is true; but the soul will taste a sweet peace in the bosom of God.'

St. Paul of the Cross

'In the spiritual life there are three degrees: the first may be called the animal life; this is the life of those who run after sensible devotion, which God generally gives to beginners, to allure them onwards by that sweetness to the spiritual life, just as an animal is drawn on by a sensible object.

The second degree may be called the human life; this is the life of those who do not experience any sensible sweetness, but by the help of virtue combat their own passions.

The third degree may be called the angelic life; this is the life which they come to, who, having been exercised for a long time in the taming of their own passions, receive from God a quiet, tranquil, and almost angelic life, even in this world, feeling no trouble or repugnance in anything. Of these three degrees it is well to persevere in the second, because the Lord will grant the third in His own good time.'

From the kitchen window. . .





To the outside. . .


















'Let everything in creation draw you to God. Refresh your mind with some innocent recreation and needful rest, if it were only to saunter through the garden or the fields, listening to the sermon preached by the flowers, the trees, the meadows, the sun, the sky, and the whole universe. You will find that they exhort you to love and praise God; that they excite you to extol the greatness of the Sovereign Architect Who has given them their being.'

St. Paul of the Cross


Some images from yesterday. I had a good time out today clearing away fallen branches in the yard. The robins and rabbits had to give way for a awhile. There's more to clear up and I am glad for the exercise. I am looking forwards to having everything looking good. I like the look of the old moss in variegated colors. It makes me think of virtue in all its different forms. Much of the plants are worn and dappled now, everything will become green throughout when if rainy days arrive.

Kyrie eleison.
