I have ascended to the highest in me, and look! The Lord is towering above that. In my curiosity I have descended to explore my lowest depths, yet I found God even deeper. If I looked outside myself, I saw God stretching beyond the furthest I could see; and if I looked within, God was yet further within. Then I knew the truth of what I had read, "In God we live and move and have our being."  

—Bernard of Clairvaux, Cistercian, 12th Century

Prayer for Discernment

LORD, help me:
   TO boldly take charge of my life, aim for the most beautiful and profound things, and keep my heart pure.
   TO respond to your call, with the aid of wise and generous guides, and realize a proper plan for my life to achieve true happiness.
   TO  dream great dreams and
always have a concern for the
good of others.
   TO  stand with you at the foot
of the cross and receive the gift
of your mother.
   TO  witness to your Resurrection and the hope
that it brings.
   TO  be aware that you are at
my side as I joyously proclaim
you as Lord. Amen.

                  — Pope Francis
