Passion Cont’d

“ The only sin passion can commit is to be joyless.”

~ Dorothy L. Sayers (an English writer).

—————————————————

– Passion is embodied prayer

– Passion is holy – a profound mystery that transforms through awakening and rapture.

– Passion is both illumination and darkness.

– Passion is driven by desire; the desire that your soul’s longing for Something More is Spirit-directed.

– Passion is what might be.

– Passion is paradise found.

– Passion is our saving grace, and not a sin.

– Passion is a lighted match to the dry tinder of our hearts, meant to burn away the underbrush of self-deceit, the decaying deadwood of what’s meant to become our immediate past when it’s time for us to continue the search for Something More.

– Passion is truth’s soul mate.

– There are three very important spiritual lessons all of us must learn in life: “passion, betrayal, and forgiveness.”

~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

“ The blessings for which we hunger are not to be found in other places or people. These gifts can only be given to you by yourself. They are at home in the hearth of your soul.”

~ John O’Donohue
