True Happiness

pier-giorgio-portraitTrue happiness… does not consist in the pleasures of the world and in earthly things, but in peace of conscience which we can only have if we are pure in heart and in mind.

Trusting All Things to God

Where can a man warm himself better than by the fire? So it is in God. Man must bring all that concerns him to God, and leave all with Him. God will provide for him in the best of ways. He must trust all things to God; and, in that trust, he must be ready to accept all things, as for the best, and rest in the divine peace.
Johannes Tauler OP (1300–1361)

No Rival

If we ever are to attain to true Divine Peace and be completely united to God, all that is not absolutely necessary, either bodily or spiritually, must be cast off – everything that could interpose itself to an unlawful extent between us and Him, and lead us astray. For He alone will be Lord in our hearts none other. Divine Love can admit no rival.
Johannes Tauler OP (1300–1361)
