On that day,
a shoot shall sprout 
from the stump of Jesse,
and from his roots 
a bud shall blossom.
Isaiah 11:1

"For a stalk to grow or a flower to open there must be time that cannot be forced; nine months must go by for the birth of a human child; to write a book or compose music often years must be dedicated to patient research ...To find the mystery there must be patience, interior purification, silence, waiting...." 

Blessed Pope John Paul II
