Quote of the Week

September 6, 2006

“The more we think that God hurts only to heal, the less we can believe that there is any use in begging for tenderness.”

“The time when there is nothing at all in your soul except a cry for help may be just the time when God can’t give it: you are like a drowning man who can’t be helped because he clutches and grabs. Perhaps your own reiterated cries deafen you to the voice you hoped to hear.”

“After all, you must have a capacity to receive, or even omnipotence can’t give. Perhaps your own passion temporarily destroys the capacity.”

C. S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
