QuotationNow too is the time to go into a different regime. I don't need all the library books I have been getting (though Lawrence's Mornings in Mexico had two wonderful chapters on Indian towns). More prayer, more sacrifice, more silence- more work. There are still lots of things to think about in the next three months. I have little doubt the indult will be granted.
