Being Obedient Minute Meditations
Always keep before your mind’s eye the obedience of Jesus in the garden and on the cross; he obeyed in immense conflict with no respite. Jesus’ obedience was excellent, and the more bitter it was, the more beautiful it was.

American Catholic Blog To avoid running aground on the rocks, our spiritual life cannot be
reduced to a few religious moments. In the succession of days and 
seasons, in the unfolding of times and events, we learn to see ourselves by looking to the One who does not pass away: spirituality is a return to the essential, to that good that no one can take from us, the one truly necessary thing.
