Come And See

Read the Gospel (John 1:29-42) here.

God made Sun and Moon to distinguish seasons, and day and night,
and we cannot have the fruits of the earth but in their seasons:
But God hath made no decree to distinguish the seasons of His mercies….
In Heaven it is always Autumn,
his mercies are ever in their maturity.

John Donne

* * * * * * * * * *

God is the God of the humble, the miserable,
the oppressed, and the desperate,
and of those who are brought even to nothing;
and his nature is to give sight to the blind,
to comfort the broken-hearted,
to justify sinners,
to save the very desperate and damned.

Martin Luther

* * * * * * * * * *

Ultimately, this is what you go before God for:
You’ve had bad luck and good luck
and all you really want in the end is mercy.

Robert Frost

* * * * * * * * * *

The modern soul is not going to find peace
so long as he is locked up inside himself,
mulling around in the scum and sediment of his unconscious mind,
a prey of the unconscious forces
whose nature and existence he glorifies.

Fulton J. Sheen

* * * * * * * * * *

A great many people are trying to make peace,
but that has already been done.
God has not left it for us to do;
all we have to do is to enter into it.

Dwight L. Moody
