CQOD: 01/24/07 -- François de Sales: the Divine will

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 24, 2007
Feast of François de Sales, Bishop of Geneva, Teacher, 1622
    And looking about at those who sat around him, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother."
    -- Mark 3:34-35 (ESV)

    If I want only pure water, what does it matter to me whether it be brought in a vase of gold or of glass? What is it to me whether the will of God be presented to me in tribulation or consolation, since I desire and seek only the Divine will?
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may seek Your will in my life.
