Rabindranath Tagore

The Power of the Creator manifests itself in His creatures according to the generosity of their hearts, whatever their beliefs or disbelief. This certainty fills with encouragement the Soul of those who are determined to do Good. Perseverance is synonymous with Faith, a virtue that, in the words of the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), a friend of Gandhi (1869-1948), “is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”

Do Not Miss Any Opportunity

If we know how to take advantage of every opportunity that Christ offers, God will open up new paths for us.

Tela: Joseph Von Führich (1800-1876)


This is the psalmist’s plea: “Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your Good Spirit lead me on level ground!” (Book of Psalms 143:10)
