The Door of What Must be Done

'On hearing Christ's voice, 
we open the door to receive Him, as it were,
when we freely assent to His promptings 
and when we give ourselves over to doing what must be done.'

St. Bede

Painting: Edmund Tarbell, 1910, in US public domain due to age


  1. Beautiful painting! What a robe. This passage expresses such a mature spirituality! We fulfill so many duties in life but to "freely assent to His promptings" is an ongoing struggle. Worth pondering.....
