Lent II

"...I am an orphan
And yet wherever I go angels come
To show me the path of that strange father
Whose heart is softer than a human father's heart." 

(Antonin Artaud)

And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while."  (Mark 6:31)

... let us reason together, saith the Lord. Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.  (Isaiah 1:18)

Even now, says the Lord,
return to me with your whole heart. (Joel 2:12)

Even now.

But somehow my blind alleys ended here,
And for each good thing I get,
Truly I am grateful;
This feels like winter,
Yet strangely blessed...

The Aftermath of Conversion

"To make the start is one thing, perseverance another....'Perseverance' doesn't mean merely a kind of jog-trot which will get us there in the end if we stick to it. It is a progress, a growth; giving yourself up more and more to God, fitting your life more and more into His pattern." (Ronald Knox)
