If you seek after God with all your heart
and all your strength,
then the virtues of your soul and body
will turn you into a mirror
of the image of God within.
You will be so merged in God,

and God so merged in you,
that each will endlessly repose in the other.
Such are the riches of the gifts of the Spirit
that such a disciple will be, and be manifested as,
the very icon of divine blessedness,
a very god by adoption,
since God is the perfecter of his own perfection.
[Niketas Stethatos, 11th century monk]

May the sun bring you new energy by day,

May the moon softly restore you by night,

May the rain wash away your worries

May the breeze blow new strength into your being

May you walk gently through the world

and know its beauty all the days of your life.

[Apache blessing]

[Numbers 6.24]


"And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life must be lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for being in love." [Nicholas Sparks]

"Come to me, all you that yearn for me, and be filled with my fruits. You will remember me as sweeter than honey, better to have than the honeycomb. He who eats of me will hunger still, he who drinks of me will thirst for more." [Book of Sirach] ... Savour the sweetness, and long for more, from the never-ending supply, the source that never runs dry ... Immersed in sweetness, we journey on and we thirst for more ...


Dear child, wishing you grace, mercy and peace.

Fan into a flame the gift that God gave you:

the Spirit of power and love.

God's grace has been granted to you,

before the beginning of time.

[St Paul]
