Spiritual Quote of the Day (Fr. Jean Pierre de Caussade, on Why We Should ‘Discover God in the Smallest and Most Ordinary Things’)

“The present moment holds infinite riches beyond your wildest dreams, but you will only enjoy them to the extent of your faith and love. . . . To discover God in the smallest and most ordinary things, as well as the greatest, is to possess a rare and sublime faith. To find contentment in the present moment is to relish and adore the divine will in the succession of all the things to be done and suffered which make up the duty to the present moment.”— French Jesuit Jean Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751), The Sacrament of the Present Moment, translated by Kitty Muggeridge (1861)
