"We must nourish a great love for God and our neighbors; a strong love, and an ardent love, a love that burns away imperfections; a love that gently bears an act of impatience or a bitter word; a love that lets an inadvertence or act of neglect pass without comment; a love that lends itself readily to an act of charity."
-Blessed Maria Elizabetta Hesselblad
Life isn't about weathering the storm, its about daring to dance with God in the rain.
“As Jesus, in his abandonment before death, delivered himself into the hands of the invisible and incomprehensible God, the soul must do likewise—casting herself headlong into the pitch darkness of faith, the only way to the incomprehensible God.”
-St. Edith Stein
"The person who receives Holy Communion loses himself in God like a drop of water in the ocean. It's impossible to separate them anymore...In these vast depths of love, there's enough to lose yourself for eternity."
-St. John Vianney
Every day He humbles himself, just as He did when He came from His heavenly throne into the Virgin's womb; every day He comes to us and lets us see Him in lowliness, when He descends from the bosom of the Father into the hands of the priest at the altar.
-St. Francis of Assisi
Christ there in the tabernacle, in his humanity and divinity, is like the sun. We bathe ourselves in this sunlight which warms us and heals us.
Jesus has chosen us for Himself; we belong to Him. Let us be so convinced of this belonging that we do not allow anything, however small, to separate us from this belonging- from this love.
-Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
By the practice of your religion you are called to give witness to your faith. And because actions speak louder than words, you are called to proclaim, by the conduct of your daily lives, that you really do believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.
-Blessed John Paul II
