CQOD: 04/29/07 -- Catherine of Siena: hunger for God

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 29, 2007
Feast of Catherine of Siena, Mystic, Teacher, 1380
    Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."
    -- John 4:10 (ESV)

    You, O eternal Trinity, are a deep sea, into which the more I enter the more I find, and the more I find the more I seek. The soul cannot be satiated in your abyss, for she continually hungers after you, the eternal Trinity, desiring to see you with the light of your light. As the hart desires the springs of living water, so my soul desires to leave the prison of this dark body and see you in truth.
    ... Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, without You, I was starving.
