Ordinary Time: Thursday, January 31, 2008

Today, it's a little late, been busy here in the office.  But today, just a quick thought, thanks to our friends at Christian Quotation of the Day.  

No man desires anything so eagerly as God desires to bring men to the knowledge of Himself. God is always ready, but we are very unready. God is near us, but we are far from Him. God is within, and we are without. God is friendly; we are estranged.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?), from 
Meister Eckhart's Sermons, trans. Claud Field, H. R. Allenson, London, 1909, p.24
