Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.

G.K. Chesterton

One of the hallmarks of a holy person, of a saint, is their ability to be truly present to the people around them.

Because they image Christ to the world. You know, we see Christ shining out of them and what does that feel like to be in the presence of someone who is just such a great mirror of the love of Christ. Well, when you are in their presence, you feel like you are the only one.
