My Everday Oblation

'And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying 'this is the way, walk in it,' when you turn to the right or to the left.'' (Isaiah 30:21)

‘Either we learn to find our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or else we shall never find Him.’ (St Josemaria Escriva)
'Our Lord has created persons for all states in life, and in all of them we see people who achieved sanctity by fulfilling their obligations well.' (St. Anthony Mary Claret)

- God is working in my ordinary, everyday life. Yes, right in the midst of the world. Do I believe this? Do I ever see this?

- God is asking me to love and serve Him exactly where I am right now. How shall I respond to His call today?

- Suggestion: Keep a notebook or journal of how I hear and respond to God in the everyday, ordinary circumstances of my life.   

'Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.' (St. Ignatius Loyola )

'Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.' (St. Catherine of Siena)

  1. Can you source the painting of the mother and child in front of the statue of Our Lady? It is beautiful.

    1. That is "Young Woman with Baby Beside Wall" by Edouard de Beaumont. Most of the public domain pictures I use can be identified by right clicking on the image... then clicking as if you're going to save it (which is okay to do anyway, with things in public domain)

  2. I love these quotes Nancy. Thank you for sharing.
