Quote of the Week

"In order to be perfectly what God wants us to be we must be truly ourselves. But in order to be truly ourselves we must find ourselves in Christ--which can only be done if we lose ourselves in Him. This is our great vocation."

- Thomas Merton, 20th century Trappist monk, from his book Seeds of Contemplation

(Painting: "Triptych with Crucifixion," by Jacob Cornelisz van Oostanen, c.1510)
