I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"This is what life is about. It is being sent on a trip by a loving God, who is waiting at home for our return and is eager to watch the slides we took and hear about the friends we made. When we travel with the eyes and ears of the God who sent us, we will see wonderful sights, hear wonderful sounds, meet wonderful people ... and be happy to return home."
— Henri Nouwen, Dutch-born Catholic priest, born January 24, 1932
