God will never take anything from us without giving himself in the exchange. Fr. Donald Haggerty, Contemplative Provocations God bless,
Dear Friends of Lumen, “There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.” G.K. Chesterton When will enough be enough? This applies to the guys too! I understand the value of looking good and keeping up with the latest trends/gadgets, but… God bless, Fr. Michael Sliney, LC Chaplain / Lumen-Manhattan
Dear Lumen Members and Fellows, “What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.” CS Lewis One day at a time. One moment at a time. Falling and getting back up again and again. Living in the present with eternity always in the background. God bless, Fr. Michael Sliney, LC Chaplain / Lumen-Manhattan
Dear Lumen Members and Fellows, “Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” CS Lewis Is your ultimate goal to help your spouse and children reach heaven? What steps are you taking to make this happen? God bless, Fr. Michael Sliney, LC Chaplain / Lumen-Manhattan
Dear Friends of Lumen, “To speak truths sweetly is to throw burning coals, or rather roses, into a person’s face. How can anyone be angry with another who fights him with pearls and diamonds?” -Saint Francis of Sales Pearls and diamonds. Beautiful images to capture my mom’s way of dealing with me as a kid and now as a priest. She is so considerate, so humble, so careful, so refined, so gracious, so deep and rich when she asks something of me, anything of me…I simply cannot say no to her dazzling and delightful approach! God bless,
Dear Friends of Lumen, “As a moth gnaws a garment, so doth envy consume a [person].” St. John Chrysostom Don’t waste time and energy being envious of things that in the big picture really do not matter: good looks, material possessions, attractive personalities, etc… Rather, focus on the higher gifts, the deep virtues of others, and try to learn from them and imitate them, instead of trying to bring that person down! God bless,
