Our Faith, His Strength

Posted on 2010-06-03. Filed under: Quotes |

When the time comes to enter the darkness in which we are naked and helpless and alone; in which we see the insufficiency of our greatest strength and the hollowness of our strongest virtues; in which we have nothing of our own to rely on, and nothing in our nature to support us, and nothing in the world to guide us or give us fight—then we find out whether or not we live by faith.

— Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation
