Spiritual Quotes - Religious Quotes

The Infinite and Eternal Spirit appears in different ways. Each one of us has a different visualization, and often different words for Spirit. We share unity with each other and with the same Creator Spirit whether you say God (an English word of Germanic origin), Lord, Holy Spirit, Jesus, Higher Power, The Light, YHWH (Hebrew), Allah (Arabic), Dieu (French), Dios (Spanish), Deus (Latin - until recently the language of all Catholic services worldwide), or any of thousands of other words for Spirit in use around the globe. Feel your Spiritual Nature merge with all Spiritual Beings and with the Infinite Power of Spirit as you contemplate these spiritual sayings and faith quotes.

Honor your being,
release each and every struggle,
gather strength from life's storms,
relax into the arms of spirit.

The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- although attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, this prayer first appeared (written in French) in 1912
