                    "Before I became a monk I spent my life pursuing my own satisfactions. I worked hard to ensure I got what I wanted, and succeeded many times. When I became a monk I began to satisfy the needs of others, and in doing so I have never felt more complete.

                    Nothing, absolutely nothing, can compare with knowing and being known by God. I ask, no I beg, the forgiveness of mankind on behalf of the church, for we have done a poor job of representing Christ. Yet, there is good news and is that you can pray to Him directly; for if in your heart you truly desire to know Him, He will make Himself known to you. Whatever you do in this life, again I say, whatever you do in this life – be reconciled with God who is your Heavenly Father!" Br. Giacomo

                                  • "There are only two kinds of people in this world: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done' and those to whom God says, 'All right then, have it your way.' Surely we have had enough of doing things our way, is it not therefore time for us to awake out of slumber, to come out of darkness and enter into the light of God's goodness and mercy and to live as He has taught?"

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then we shall see Him face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, even as I am known by Him who created me." St. Paul

                                            "Paul teaches us that there comes a time in each of our lives when we are called to enter maturity, to be wise, ultimately to acknowledge and follow God, and that the wisdom of this choice will be made abundantly clear."

                                            • "When I look to myself, I see only within the limits of my own understanding and perception. It requires a humble heart and a willing spirit to look beyond the known and into the unknown, into the place where God dwells. Everyday He calls us to this place. Everywhere and in everything God has left His divine fingerprint, scriven with invisible ink, waiting to be revealed by the slightest warmth from the flame of faith." Br. Giacomo

                                                • "The wisdom of man is oftentimes tainted by blindness, prejudice, and ulterior motive; but the wisdom of God is pure and simple. In the Gospels, Christ condenses the requirement of religious teaching into one double-command; to love God above all and to love our neighbour as ourself. And this 'to love God above all', really is they key to everything in life." Br. Giacomo

                                                  Chapel in Oia, Santorini, Greece

                                                    • "For sure, we can live life without God, many do, and yet if they are honest many also sense that He exists, for He does and is ever present. Better then that we seek Him while He may be found, for this is not a choice we will regret. How to seek Him? Simply begin talking to Him as though He hears you, because He does." Br. Giacomo

                                                      The Chapel of St. Remigius, Falera, Switzerland




                                                      • "The Christian view is that this is a good world gone wrong, but which still retains the memory of what it ought to have been. If this be so, then let us do all we can to do what is right. This can only truly begin when God becomes a daily part of our life." CS Lewis

                                                        The Chapel of St. Joseph, D'Aste, Montana

                                                        • "Imagine if the God of the entire universe was calling you to know Him in person. Wouldn't that be a privilege? Wouldn't that change your life? Well, the good news is that He is calling you, even today, and His message is: "I love you, I care for you, I have watched over you from the beginning. Come to me, because it is for this purpose that I created you." ― Br. Giacomo

                                                          The Church of St Benedict, Praia dos Carneiros, Tamandaré, Brasil



                                                          • "We can do many things in this life, but only that which is done with God will outlast this world." ― Br. Giacomo

                                                            • 'Every valley, every mountain, every tree and flower, all of creation is a signpost revealing the Great Architect of this world. Our lives are the ultimate witness that we are the work of a greater power and of a higher intelligence. These signs He has given us in order that we may have no doubt concerning His existence. Through the prophet Jeremiah God promises: "You will find me when you seek me with all your heart." Let us then do this very thing and be reconciled with our Heavenly Father, the One True God who is above all.'
                                                              ― Br. Giacomo
