Quotemeal: Feb. 12th, 2019

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

"The question we must ask our heart is, "Am I comfortable under the eye of God? Or is God getting too close?" We are strange and lovely creatures. We can ache for God tremendously yet find ourselves getting nervous if God gets too close. After all, the closer God gets, the more we hear the call to be divinized. It is both exciting and frightening to hear that call."
— MacRina Wiederkehr
