    "I would believe only in a god who could dance. And when I saw my devil I found him serious, thorough, profound, and solemn: it was the spirit of gravity - through him all things fall. "

    "If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins 'you shall receive a never-fading crown of glory.' Even if you are on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil as sorcerers do who practise black magic, and even if you are a heretic as obstinate as a devil, sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and will save your soul, if-- and mark well what I say-- if you say the Holy Rosary devoutly every day until death for the purpose of knowing the truth and obtaining contrition and pardon for your sins."

    St. Louis de Montfort from The Secret of the Rosary.

    My heart has become able
    to take on all forms.

    It is a pasture for gazelles,
    for monks, an abbey.
    It is a temple for idols,
    and for whoever walks around it, the Kaaba.
    It is the tablets of the Torah,
    and also the leaves of the Qur’an!

    I believe in the religion of Love,
    whatever direction its caravans may take,
    for Love is my religion and my faith.

    Amen and amen!

    "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

    "Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but
    rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man
    is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering
    for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible."
