ANTHONY de MELLO SJ – ‘When a man whose marriage was in trouble sought his advice, the Abba said, ‘You must listen to your wife.’ The man took this advice to heart and returned after a month to say that he had learned to listen to every word his wife as saying. Said the Abba with a smile, ‘Now go home and listen to every word she isn’t saying.’
MAY- the risen Lord lead each of you into the desert of your heart, and speak to you there in His Spirit, and show you the radiant mercy of His Father’s face. Then may he lead you to His brothers and sisters who are everywhere awaiting your love.
HEBRIDEAN ALTARS –‘ Keep within me a stillness deeper and sweeter than a forest’s in mid of winter.’
