adesse.

imageThis compelling love, steeped in silence, is required of every soul.  This obedience to the present moment is, moreover, an act whereby they dedicate themselves totally to the external will of God as a matter of course. This is their rule, method, law and way.  Pure, simple and sure, it is a straight path along which souls walk with courage and faith, looking neither to the right nor the left, unconcerned with everything else.

~~Jean-Pierre de Caussade, The Sacrament of the Present Moment

Author: The Rev. Janie Koch

Thoreau wanted to suck out all the marrow of life. Shakespeare reflected through Macbeth that all is shadow, that man struts and frets his hour upon the stage. Frost pondered the road he didn’t take while walking the fence line replacing fallen stones with his neighbor. I am a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. I serve at All Saints Episcopal Church in McAlester, OK. This blog is my keepsake box of what I observe and question and craft as I walk my path. Thanks for stopping by.
