From the Magnificat‘s Meditation of the Day, by Caryll Houselander, on the feast of Saints Timothy and Titus:
Christ is that good seed with which our humanity is sown…
We are the soil of the divine seed; there is no other. The flowering of Christ in us does not depend upon pious exercises, on good works outside our daily life, on an amateur practice of religion in our leisure time. It is the in the marrow of our bones, in the experience of our daily life.
The seed is in darkness: the darkness of sorrow, the darkness of faith.
