God judged it better to bring good out of evil
than to allow no evil to exist.

(St. Augustine)



It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. 

(Harry Truman)


Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.”
(Thomas Merton)


hopeOptimism is the expectation that things — the weather, human relationships, the economy, the political situation, and so on — will get better.

Hope is the trust that God will fulfill God’s promises to us in a way that leads us to true freedom.

The optimist speaks about concrete changes in the future.

The person of hope lives in the moment with the knowledge and trust that all of life is in good hands…..Let’s live with hope.
(Fr. Henri Nouwen)
