Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Divine union, not private perfection, is the goal of all religion (Goal).

What is the source of your spiritual power? It’s radical union with God, not just doing good things or holding a role or function...in the end, the only basis for fruitful Christianity is divine union. Such people change you and change the world. Leon Bloy said it well: “There is only one sadness in life, only one—not to be a saint.”

today O Sacred One
I want to be a saint

St. Stephen has such a nice ring to it

so Lord
this day consume me,
be present inside me,

it is time for a non-hostile take over
make yourself so much a part of me
that I cannot tell where you start and “I” end

let us be united
for that is what faith is all about

may we be like lovers
yes, like husband and wife
two becoming one

the mystery of incarnation
of faith

will take care of itself
