The Daily Catch - published on 04/07/16

“If in my life I fail completely to heed others, solely out of a desire to be ‘devout’ and to perform my ‘religious duties’, then my relationship with God will also grow arid. It becomes merely ‘proper’, but loveless.”
― Pope Benedict XVI, God Is Love: Deus Caritas Est
