The Antics of the Turnips | Commonweal Magazine

Let us make the most of the little things in our everyday life, our ordinary life…. There is no need to do great things to become great saints. Making the little things great is enough. In the world, people waste many opportunities, but the world is distracting…. It is worth just as much to love God by speaking as it is to love Him in Trappist silence; it is a matter of doing something for Him…keeping Him in mind…. Location, place, occupation are irrelevant.

An excerpt of my forthcoming translation of St. Rafael Arnáiz’s writings is out in Commonweal as part of their March issue! I’ve also shared further project updates here.
