Light Calls Upon light

 

It seems Light calls upon light
Magnetic attraction

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back.
From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never

compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving
toward the summit of fulfillment.”
—John O’Donohue, “Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom”

“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”—Frederick Buechner

© Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, “Abide, Keeping Vigil with the Word of God”, Liturgical Press

—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)
