“The hidden years are “crucifying” in the sense that this anonymity kills selfish ambition and self-driven agendas that are mostly unseen by ourselves. The hidden wilderness season is meant to drive out all that hinders Love and foster a complete and total dependence on God alone.” – Amy Knight
“This confidence to put back into the hands of God all things and to not presume anything is a pleasing submission to the Lord that He will honor and surely let His will be known over time with convincing evidence and many confirmations. Let this attitude of holy indifference be our aim.” – Amy Knight
“To die mystically is to die to all that is not Christ in our lives.” -Amy Knight

Amy Knight on St. Paul of the Cross and coming to full Christian maturity.
“We hear variations of the lie that we are ‘not enough.’ And yet we have the precise gifts for our particular family, for our exact calling, for this specific cross, in this time, at this place, for this season. God promises only daily bread, and it is made to order. We do not have the grace for anyone else’s life—or even for tomorrow—but we have all we need to become more fully ourselves, which is more like Christ, today.” – Claire Dwyer
