Quotemeal: Apr. 12th, 2018

Thursday, April 12, 2018

"When we get our spiritual house in order, we'll be dead. This goes on. You arrive at enough certainty to be able to make your way, but it is making it in darkness. Don't expect faith to clear things up for you. It is trust, not certainty."
— Flannery O'Connor
