In Conversation with God:

Jesus… clarifies the meaning and scope of the Commandments of God received by Moses on Sinai and corrects false interpretations. His precepts, continuing the same revelation as in the Old Testament, are, however, absolutely new. No one has shown the sovereignty of God as he has and, at the same time, made it clear that God is a Father, lovingly concerned about the world, and, most of all, about mankind, his children. No one has shown the fundamental truth about man as he has: that man is free and has a marvellous dignity…

He is not deceived by our miseries and weaknesses. He knows very well what an abyss of evil there can be in every heart. But he also knows, better than we do, the possibilities of generosity, of sacrifice, of greatness which also exists in every heart, and he can arouse them with his word…

When Solomon, who loved Yahweh, was still young, Yahweh appeared to him during the night in a dream and said to him, ‘ask me what you want me to give to you.’ Solomon did not ask for riches, or power, or a long life… but wisdom to govern the people of God. This was very pleasing to the Lord, and He granted him a wise and intelligent heart – a heart quick to learn.

We too should ask above all for a heart capable of listening, and of understanding those interior motions of the Paraclete in our soul…

… of all the money that e’er i had, i’ve spent it in good company, and all the harm that e’er i’ve done, alas it was to none but me, and all I’ve done for want of wit to memory now i can’t recall, so fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be with you all, of all the comrades that e’er i had, they are sorry for my going away, and all the sweethearts that e’er i had, they would wish me one more day to stay, but since it falls unto my lot that i should rise and you should not, i’ll gently rise and i’ll softly call good night and joy be with you all, a man may drink and not be drunk, a man may fight and not be slain, a man may court a pretty girl and perhaps be welcomed back again, but since it has so ought to be by a time to rise and a time to fall, come fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be with you all, good night and joy be with you all…
