Do not examine whether what you do is little or much, good or ill, provided it is not sin, and provided that in good faith you will do it for God.
The majority of great enterprises result from daily fulfillment of one’s duty in small, everyday things. What is valuable in the doing is our special love for the poor and the sick.
A cheerful attitude will sustain you in all your difficulties, trials and sufferings in life.
We do very little good when we embark on our own. We do much good when we allow God to direct us and direct our enterprises.
I love Him even if it costs much. I love Him because it is worth much. I love Him at all cost.
The vision of the holy ones is not fraught with distraction: ‘For they will not strive, nor cry, nor shall anyone hear their voice’ (Matthew 12:19, Isaiah 42:2). But it comes quietly and gently that an immediate joy, gladness, and courage arise in the soul. For the Lord who is our joy is with them, and the power of God the Father.
The Lord challenges our faith to do something new, precisely when so many things are collapsing in the world.
Our Lady’s love is like a stream that has its source in the Eternal Fountains, quenches the thirst of all, can never be drained, and ever flows back to its Source.
As no darkness can be seen by anyone surrounded by light, so no trivialities can capture the attention of anyone who has his eyes on Christ.
God never forgets you, He knows your needs. Show that you are generous in accepting whatever He may send you in the future. Nothing will happen to you without Him knowing it.
