Inspirational Quotes for the WEEKEND

By Charles Leyman Kachitsa

Life is but a light that we hold and keep illuminating to brighten the ways of this world. That light starts by clearing the path of ones own mind and if enlightened enough then, that light in its abundance go on to illuminate the path for others to make this life so adorable to all. The way is clear that is so lighted up as light diffuses darkness.

As the year draws to a close, many are preparing to acquire more material to light up their paths no matter what that path is. To some it’s getting more resources be it financial with the belief that if such is in abundance it will light up their way through and through the year. To others at a very subsistence level, it may be acquiring more basic food such as corn (maize) to make sure the very basis of sustaining life is available hoping such then will lead to an enlightened way.

Let your light shine more during this coming year 2023. This entails that the light becomes visible to others. It can only be visible if the inside has abundance of it and as a result that light is so expansive that it is overflowing to be seen outside, to help or nourish others who perhaps are not so lucky.

You need to acquire the light in your mind; knowledge through constant learning is one way of doing that. Also reconnecting with yourself, some will say reconnecting with the universe through prayer, reflection and or meditation. First though you need to know who is you, is it the body or is it the soul? You are more than you, when you analyse and answer a question of who is it ‘you’. It’s all by knowing the truth and there is only one truth, only one source of life the creator which is the truth.

The quotes this week in transitioning to the New Year 2023, we reflect on a religious leader who has on this last day of the year 2022 left this world. I am sure that the selected quotations from this man given below will enlighten you to one or two life lessons. Read and enjoy:

LATE POPE EMERITUS BENEDICT XVI OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC ( 1927 – 2022) Notable Quotes

“Eternal life will be like “immersing yourself in the ocean of infinite love where time — a before and an after — no longer exists. Fullness of life and joy: This is what we hope for and expect from our being with Christ.” — Angelus address Nov. 2, 2008.

“I would like to remind everyone, especially governments engaged in boosting the world’s economic and social assets, that the primary capital to be safeguarded and valued is man, the human person in his or her integrity.” — Encyclical Caritas in Veritate, June 29, 2009.

“In nature, the believer recognizes the wonderful result of God’s creative activity, which we may use responsibly to satisfy our legitimate needs, material or otherwise, while respecting the intrinsic balance of creation. If this vision is lost, we end up either considering nature an untouchable taboo or, on the contrary, abusing it. Neither attitude is consonant with the Christian vision of nature as the fruit of God’s creation.” — Encyclical Caritas in Veritate, June 29, 2009.

“It is very helpful to confess with a certain regularity. It is true: our sins are always the same, but we clean our homes, our rooms, at least once a week, even if the dirt is always the same, in order to live in cleanliness, in order to start again. Otherwise, the dirt might not be seen, but it builds up. Something similar can be said about the soul.” — Response to children’s questions, Oct. 15, 2005.

“Dear married couples, in living out your marriage you are not giving each other any particular thing or activity, but your whole lives. And your love is fruitful first and foremost for yourselves, because you desire and accomplish one another’s good, you experience the joy of receiving and giving. It is also fruitful in your generous and responsible procreation of children, in your attentive care for them, and in their vigilant and wise education. And lastly, it is fruitful for society, because family life is the first and irreplaceable school of social virtues, such as respect for persons, gratuitousness, trust, responsibility, solidarity, cooperation.” — World Meeting of Families, Milan, Italy, June 3, 2012.

“There are those who argue that the public celebration of festivals such as Christmas should be discouraged, in the questionable belief that it might somehow offend those of other religions or none.”

“This obedience to the voice of the Earth is more important for our future happiness… than the desires of the moment.”
