Day Nineteen - A Passage from a Book That Has Touched You

Now here is a really tough one...asking someone who LOVES to read to pick ONE passage from ONE book that has touched her! There are so many I could choose, I could create a blog just for book passages!

I went to the bookshelf in the living room where we keep all of our Catholic books (Bibles, Saint books, devotionals, etc.). I grabbed Thank God Ahead of Time: The Life and Spirituality of Solanus Casey by Michael H. Crosby, O.F.M. CAP. This was one of my review books for The Catholic Company & you can read my review HERE.

"To those who don't understand, no explanation is sufficient and to those who do understand, no explanation is necessary....Life is to live and life is to give and talents to use for good if you choose. Do not pray for easy lives, pray to be stronger. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers, pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle but you shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God."
