Book meme!

Adrienne nabbed me, and this looks fun. Here be the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

The two nearest books are a Bible and breviary, but rather than quote Scripture I'll grab the next nearest book: Fire Within by Thomas Dubay. The sentences called for form their own paragraph:
If the reader recoils at the thought of much solitude and at the unappealing prospects of fitting it into a crowded schedule, St. Teresa is an understanding mentor. She adverts to our needing to learn to like and to appreciate being alone with God, and she is mindful that we need to get used to it, that it does not come easily at the outset. Determination is therefore in order to see to it that the first things do come first, that we are prepared to provide the suitable time and place for growth to happen.
Oooh, I was planning on reading this book soon and it sounds like it'll be good. :) I tag whoever wishes to play!

Haha! I feel proud somehow that I gave the same answer as Father V.
