Sanctifying the moment:
Every moment brings us more treasures than we can gather. The great value of the Now, spiritually viewed, is that it carries a message God has directed personally to us.
The Divine Beloved speaks to the soul in a whisper, but because the soul is waiting for a trumpet, it loses His command.
The big, world-shattering things many of us imagine we would like to do for God, might, in the end, feed only our egotism. On the other hand, to accept the crosses of our state of life because they come from an all-loving God is to have taken the most important step in the reformation of the world, namely, the reformation of the self.
The phrase that sanctifies any moment is, “Thy will be done.”
Each trial is an occasion for faith and an opportunity for virtue.
