Daily Quotation

'The virtue of novenas, is that they keep you at it for nine consecutive days and the human attention being what it is, this is a long time.  I hate to say most of these prayers written by saint-in-an-emotional-state.  You feel you are wearing somebody else's finery, and I can never describe my heart as "burning" to the Lord (who knows better) without snickering.'
~ Flannery O'Connor - The Habit of Being ~
