Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
Entrust yourself entirely to God. He is a Father, and a most loving Father at that, who would rather let heaven and earth collapse than abandon anyone who trusted in Him.
He does much in the sight of God who does his best, be it ever so little.
We, Christ’s soldiers, have been called by Him to change the face of this earth; to deeply renew society; to revive faith in those who have let it die in their hearts; or to revitalize it in those who, lukewarm, present a halfhearted religion that wearies people and offends God.
Whoever curses a poor man does an injury to Christ, whose noble image he wears, the image of Him who made Himself poor for us in this world.
Today we must translate the words of Scripture into deeds, and instead of speaking saintly words, we must act them.
If you want God to hear your prayers, hear the voice of the poor. If you wish God to anticipate your wants, provice those of the needy without waiting for them to ask you.
Whatever a man prefers to God, that he makes a god to himself.
