Quotation of the Day

“In a society that overvalues progress, development, and personal achievement, the spiritual life becomes quite easily performance oriented: ‘On what level am I now, and how do I move to the next one?’ ‘When will I reach union with God?’ ‘When will I experience illumination or enlightenment?'”

-Henri Nouwen, Spiritual Formation, xv
