Weekend 305.1

“St. Francis de Sales one day was looking at a rose, and he put his hands to his ears and he said to the rose, ‘Stop shouting.’ There is a power in the love of God. Most people today look at a rose and they don’t see anything; only a name, a color, a fragrance. But these great saints saw God in everything.” — Mother Angelica

“It would even now be hard to follow on the map this maze of byroads which we threaded, winding between the hawthorne hedges or gliding beneath the over-arching branches of ancient elms; passing snug farmhouses and cottages brilliant with rose vines and creepers and fairly embowered in old-fashioned flowers; and leading through villages the very embodiment of quiet and repose.” — Thos D. Murphy
