CQOD: 12/14/05 -- John of the Cross: God touching us

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 14, 2005
Feast of John of the Cross, Mystic, Poet, Teacher, 1591
    Then he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, "I do not know the man." And immediately the rooster crowed. And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." And he went out and wept bitterly.
    -- Matthew 26:74-75 (ESV)

    Sometimes, when the soul least thinks of it, and when it least desires it, God touches it divinely causing certain recollections of Himself.
    ... St. John of the Cross (1542-1591)

Quiet time reflection:
    Your word is like a sword in my heart.
