Latin Doctor Quote Of The Day
“Up now, slight man! flee, for a little while, your occupations; hide yourself, for a time, from your disturbing thoughts. Cast aside, now, your burdensome cares, and put away your toilsome business. Yield room for some little time to God; and rest for a little time in him. Enter the inner chamber of your mind; shut out all thoughts save that of God, and such as can aid you in seeking him; close your door and seek him.” (Proslogion, Prologue)
Bloggers Comment: How many people queue for hours to catch a glimpse and say a few words to their celebrity heroes at a book signing? They will stand out in the wind, snow and the Scottish cold to exchange mere pleasantries, yet how many will spend a few moments in prayer with the Creator of all? What a great gift and grace for us to be able to converse with our Lord as a friend and be assured of His most loving response and assistance. Make sure after receiving Holy Communion, you beseech our Lord and His Blessed Mother for the grace of final perseverence, so that one day you may be numbered along with Saint Anselm in the Kingdom.
