“Christian faith is a way of life, not an impregnable fortress made up of ideas; not a philosophy, a grocery list of beliefs.”

“The Christian religion asks us to place our trust not in ideas, and certainly not in ideologies, but in a God who was vulnerable enough to become human and die, and who desires to be present with us in our everyday circumstances.  And because we are human, it is in the realm of the daily and the mundane that we must find our way to God.”

“Our desire is to love God and each other, in stable relationships that, like any good marriage, remain open to surprises and receptive to grace.”

All quotes from The Quotidian Mysteries, emphasis added.
