Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel. Go and find him when your strength and patience are giving out, when you feel lonely and helpless. Say to him: ‘You know well what is happening, my dear Jesus. I have only you. Come to my aid…’ And then go your way. And don’t worry about knowing how you are going to manage. It is enough to have told our good Lord. He has an excellent memory!
God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.
Let all know that grace comes after tribulation. Let them know that without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. Let them know that the gifts of grace increase as the struggles increase. Let men take care not to stray and be deceived. This is the only true stairway to paradise, and without the cross they can find no road to climb to heaven.
We champion the Authority of God. His Authority and Commandments should be recognized, referred to, and respected.
In order to love our neighbor with perfect justice, we must look to God. How can we love our neighbor with purity, if we do not love him in God? But it is impossible to love in God unless we love God.
The air that we breathe, the bread that we eat, the heart which throbs in our bosoms, are no more necessary for man that he may live as a human being, than is prayer for the Christian that he may live as a Christian.
If we don’t see Christ in the person we rub elbows with every moment, that is because our faith is tepid and our love imperfect.
If God didn’t protect me, I would be the worst woman in the world.
Be patient with everyone, not only with the powerful, but also with the weak.
Let us remember that love lives through sacrifice and is nourished by giving. Let’s remember that not everything which is good and beautiful pertains to essential love, because even without those other things love can be present.
