|Painting by Charles Cres|
"The moment I realized that God existed,
I knew that I could not do otherwise
than to live for him alone.
Faith strips the mask from the world
and reveals God in everything.
It makes nothing impossible
and renders meaningless
such words as anxiety, danger, and fear,
so that the believer
goes through life calmly and peacefully,
with profound joy,
like a child,
hand in hand with his mother."
Charles de Foucauld
