"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Ronny O'Dwyer, SJ Quotes:
"After praying and seeking advice, I arrived on January 12th at Ross Hall in Leavenworth, our home for aged sisters. What is it about losing something that makes you all the more aware of it? One of the functions of aging is to give me the capacity to see what I have missed all the years before. The blessing of these days is to appreciate the past and also the present in a wholesome way…..This is not a time of diminishment, but a time of reconnecting with my family and friends. It is also a time to cope with my weaknesses and attend to my interior life so I can change and be a gift to others." - Sister Rose
"The point is that today can be a time to appreciate the past and also the present so as to make ourselves a true gift to others."
"We are here to feel God's love so that we can return to be more loving to those in our lives."
"God deals with a little, but does a lot."
"Sister Rose saw the world with God's heart: appreciating the past, learning to look lovingly at our history and the present so as to make ourselves a true gift to others. Our task is to see life with a new heart, to see the God sees. In other words, to see, feel, her, reflect with the eyes and heart of Jesus."
"True peace is placing our loves in the right order."
