I am SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING getting this boxed set:
I also love Madeleine's other work; she wrote on faith a lot, on marriage, on friendship. Here are some fantastic quotes by Madeleine:
Madeleine died in 2007 at the age of 88."The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been."
"If we commit ourselves to one person for life, this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather, it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession but participation."
"I will have nothing to do with a God who cares only occasionally. I need a God who is with us always, everywhere, in the deepest depths as well as the highest heights. It is when things go wrong, when good things do not happen, when our prayers seem to have been lost, that God is most present. We do not need the sheltering wings when things go smoothly. We are closest to God in the darkness, stumbling along blindly."
