Strange and Difficult Roads | Good Shepherd Sunday

“It is likely he will lead you by strange and difficult roads.” -who knows

“The final question I will leave with you is this:
Are Christians the masters of Christianity,
deciding what it should be?
Or is Christ who, through his Spirit,
takes hold of you and leads you
where you do not want to go?” (Cardinal Lustiger)

“Here I am Lord,
Here is my body,
Here is my heart,
Here is my soul.
Grant that I may be big enough to reach the world,
Strong enough to carry it.
Pure enough to embrace it without wanting to keep it.
Grant that I may be a meeting-place, but a temporary one,
A road that does not end in itself, because everything to be gathered there,
everything human, must be led to you.” (Michael Quoist, Prayer on a Sunday Night)
