"The gift of Christ is all I seek today."
"What but Christ's vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day
in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns
to me? Today I can forget the world I made. Today I can go past all
fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am
redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving
kindness and the peace of God."
"And so, our Father, we return to You, remembering we never went away;
remembering Your holy gifts to us. In gratitude and thankfulness we
come, with empty hands and open hearts and minds, asking but what You
give. We cannot make an offering sufficient for Your Son. But in Your
Love the gift of Christ is his."
