in order that everything may be divine

There is nothing more perfect or more agreeable to God than to abandon ourselves unreservedly to His good pleasure, even, and especially, when that good pleasure places the cross upon our shoulders. To realise His works God loves to choose what is weak and small, in order that everything may be divine. Let us ever keep our gaze fixed upon the face (i.e., the good pleasure) of the Father through the eyes of Jesus Christ: Quaerite faciem ejus semper.

Blessed Columba Marmion
