Holy Simplicity

From today's Give Us This Day, free print copy or app at

Single-Minded Simplicity
Simplicity is vitally important nowadays, because people are so complex, so filled with fears and inhibitions, so fragmented. The dictionary tells us that simplicity means consisting of one thing; sincere, artless, and free from affectation, which correlates with innocence rather than sophistication. Apply this to the spiritual life and we see a person who is single-minded, whose mind goes to the essence of things without embellishment and complicatedness. It conjures up a person innocent of guile, truthful and direct, who—psychologically speaking—lives directly, which is a sign of maturity.
Now “holy” simplicity is the state of mind and soul that is totally occupied by God. The colloquial word for holy simplicity would be childlikeness and would bring us immediately to the Gospel verse, “Unless you become like children (single-minded, uncomplicated, humble, trusting) you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven!” To be simple also means being emotionally or psychologically simple, in the right sense of the word. It does not mean being naive or foolishly ignorant. Intellectual simplicity should blend with this psychological simplicity, and be practiced in a way that will help us to become spiritually simple—or childlike—as Christ wants us to be.
Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Grace in Every Season
Catherine de Hueck Doherty (1896–1985) was a Russian-born aristocrat who dedicated her life to “the gospel without compromise.” Author of numerous books, she established the Madonna House in Combermere, Ontario.

Citizenship in a Republic



"The Man In The Arena" Speech at the Sorbonne Paris, France
April 23, 1910

The Famous Quote

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
