As some of you know I am inordinately colder than most people and so I have a terrible time with A/C in the summer and with lower temperatures indoors in the winter. Particularly difficult is that in a seminary were many priests concelebrate and the daily Mass combined with liturgy of the hours is a good 1 ½ hours, with the many layers of vestments of the priests they keep it about 65 degrees whereas I like it about 75 degrees.
Giving a talk in Staten Island, NYC I was driven from Connecticut by a wonderful apostolic revert, Mark Matuza. He spouted such wonderful one liners during the 3 hour drive that I begged him to send some to me to convey to you, dear blog readers:
"I was made out of love, by love, for the purpose of love"
"God does not give gifts with gift receipts.”
"I used to say life is the opportunity to do God’s will, now I say life is the opportunity to become Gods will"
"God has purged my pallet, there are but few taste buds left"
"I am obliged by love to love"
"All saints are sinners , but all sinners are not saints"
"The leaves that fall to the ground become the mulch that gives strength to the roots".
