Quote of the Day

It strikes us when our disgust for our own being, our indifference, our weakness, our hostility, and our lack of direction and composure have become intolerable to us.  It strikes us when, year after year, the longed for perfection of life does not appear ...  when despair destroys all joy and courage.  Sometimes at that moment a wave of light breaks into our darkness and it is as though a voice were saying, 'You are accepted.'  If that happens to us, we experience grace.
