Today’s Lenten Quote From St. John of the Cross

St. John of the Cross

“No creature, none of its actions and abilities, can reach or encompass God’s nature.  Consequently, a soul  must strip itself of everything pertaining to creatures and of its actions and abilities (of its understanding, satisfaction, and feeling), so that when everything unlike and unconformed to God is cast out, it may receive the likeness of God.  And the soul will receive this likeness because nothing contrary to the will of God will be left in it.  Thus it will be transformed in God.”
