Pearls of Wisdom

Rough translation of some words of wisdom from a hanging in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Holy Waters in Baños, Ecuador:

It is not the candle you light as much as the light you shine in your world.

It is not the holy water you take home in a jug as much as the holiness of your life.

It is not the blessing you receive as much as the blessing you are.

It is not the car you have blessed as much as your responsible driving.

And I would add:  It is not so much the holy places you have been to as much as the holy places you take away within you.
