[John the Baptist:] He must increase, but I must decrease.
-- John 3:30 (ASV)
Verily, if thou desirest to have the Creator of all creatures, thou must renounce all creatures; for it cannot be otherwise, but only insomuch as thy soul is emptied and bared; the less of the creature, the more of God: this is but a fair bargain.
... Johannes Tauler (ca. 1300-1361), The Inner Way
Quiet time reflection:
Teach me to love You as You love the church.
