“We children of God have to be contemplatives”

I will never share the opinion - though I respect it - of those who separate prayer from active life, as if they were incompatible. We children of God have to be contemplatives: people who, in the midst of the din of the throng, know how to find silence of soul in a lasting conversation with Our Lord, people who know how to look at him as they look at a Father, as they look at a Friend, as they look at someone with whom they are madly in love. (The Forge, 738)

“Giving is a vital need for those in love.”

Your talents, your personality, your opportunities... are being wasted: you are not allowed to make full use of them. Meditate well these words of a spiritual writer: 'The incense offered to God is not wasted. Our Lord is more honoured by the immolation of your talents than by the vain use of them.' (The Way, 684)
