The importance of meditation

"Try meditation for at least fifteen minutes a day, and in the end you will make two great discoveries: what you really are, and what you are on the way to becoming."

- Simple Truths


Away with mediocrity! Lift up your hearts! The world is looking for light. Will you hide yours under bushels? The earth is looking for savor; will you let the salt lose its savor?

- The Cross and the Beatitudes


Eyes on the Crucifix

Keep your eyes on the crucifix,
for Jesus without the cross
is a man without a mission,
and the cross without Jesus
is a burden without a reliever.
~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Archbishop Sheen on Vocations

"No true vocation starts with "what I want" or with "a work I would like to do". If we are called by God, we may be sent to a work we do not like, and "obedience is better than sacrifice." If society calls, I can stop service; if Christ calls, I am a servant forever."
- from Archbishop Sheen's autobiography, Treasure in Clay, pp. 35
