See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

For the Memorial of St. John...



An obscure quote attributed to Fr. John of the Cross:

"Live, live, live.  Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

What?



Disclaimer:  I know.  But it's not from the same John of the Cross whose feast it is today.

  3. Dear Angelo - I was only joking with this post - I often post from the writings of St. John - he is my very favorite. However, when I do post on him, many people find my reflections too dark and they misunderstand the words I copy from St. John. Happy feast day to you my friend!
