whatcha reading, i

A new feature for the new year, maybe. How about a favorite quote (or two) from each new book I read this year? I don't think I can do reviews.

Here's the first entry for 2011.

...when...we say, "Have mercy on me, a sinner," God secretly answers every petition with, "Child, your sins are forgiven." And...when we pray, we do not differ from the saints, the blessed, and the martyrs.

- The Way of a Pilgrim, Helen Bacovcin, trans.

I elided a little to find the jewel in the lotus, as it were.


  1. Great idea!

  2. I like that quote--good start to the year!
