Quotes from Light of Christ

Our Purpose

The birth of Christ in our souls is for a purpose beyond ourselves: it is because his manifestation in the world must be through us. Every Christian is, as it were, part of the dust-laden air which shall radiate the glowing epiphany of God, catch and reflect his golden Light.

God Speaks

We are being shown here something profoundly significant about human life. God speaks … in our language and shows us [God’s] secret beauty on our scale. We begin not by an arrogant other-worldliness, but by a humble recognition that human things can be holy, very full of God, and that high-minded speculations about [God’s] nature need not be holy at all; that all life is engulfed in [God] and [God] can reach out to us anywhere at any level.
