CQOD: 08/23/06 -- de Caussade: perfection in common duties

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 23, 2006
Commemoration of Rose of Lima, Contemplative, 1617
    Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
    -- Romans 6:13 (ESV)

    There is no one in the world who cannot arrive without difficulty at the most eminent perfection by fulfilling with love the obscure and common duties.
    ... J. P. de Caussade (1675-1751)

Quiet time reflection:
    Father, make me ever mindful of the smallest of my duties, to Your glory.
