Let us not then darken the joy of Christ’s victory

by remaining in captivity and darkness,

but let us declare His power,

by living as free men and women who have been called by Him out of darkness

into His admirable light.

Thomas Merton, Seasons of Celebration

If there is anything more poignant

than a body agonizing for want of bread,

it is a soul which is dying of hunger for light.

Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

The elect are whosoever will,

and the non-elect are whosoever won’t.

Henry Ward Beecher

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

God never draws anyone to Himself by force and violence.

He wishes all men to be saved, but forces no one.

John Chrysostom

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

I have a great need for Christ;

I have a great Christ for my need.

Charles H. Spurgeon
