Quote of the Day

21 Dec 2014

“I am a mass of contradictions and yet I am also a saint. I am a very good person, and I am also a sinful person. I get it and yet I oppose it too.”

“Once we know that God lives inside our contradictions, and God’s love is not dependent on our perfection, then other peoples’ contradictions don’t scandalize us or surprise us anymore. Henceforward we can be much more patient and compassionate with others because we have allowed God to do the same with us!”

Taken from Richard Rohr’s little book, Preparing for Christmas: Daily Medications for Advent. (2013) Franciscan Media.
