CQOD: 09/14/06 -- Tauler: the price of true peace

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 14, 2006
Feast of the Holy Cross
    No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
    -- Matthew 6:24 (ESV)

    If we ever are to attain to true Divine Peace, and be completely united to God, all that is not absolutely necessary, either bodily or spiritually, must be cast off; everything that could interpose itself to an unlawful extent between us and Him, and lead us astray: for He alone will be Lord in our hearts, and none other; for Divine Love can admit of no rival.
    ... Johannes Tauler (ca. 1300-1361), The Inner Way

Quiet time reflection:
    I confess, Lord, that I am double-minded. Raise in me that complete allegiance that serves the Kingdom alone.
