St. Francis XavierI do not love You because You can give me paradise or condemn me to hell, but because You are my God. I love You because You are You.
Quote from Flannery O’ConnorYou do not write the best you can for the sake of art, but for the sake of returning your talent increased to the invisible God to use or not use as He sees fit.
Another quote from Flannaery O’ConnorDon’t let me ever think, dear God, that I was anything but the instrument for Your story-just like the typewriter was mine.
Saint Benedict’s Prayer BookGrant, O Lord, that none may love You less this day because of me; that never word or act of mine may turn one soul from Thee; and, ever daring, yet one more grace would I implore, that many souls this day, because of me, may love Thee more. Amen.
St. Therese of Lisieux: Everything is GraceEverything is a direct effect of our Father's love.....difficulties, contradictions, humiliations, all the soul's miseries, her burdens.....her needs.......everything because through them, she learns humility and realizes her weakness. Everything is grace because everything is God's gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events, to the heart that loves, all is well.
St. Gianna Beretta Molla on medicine:We touch Jesus in the bodies of our patients: in the poor, the young, the old, children..........
St. Gianna Beretta Molla on work:We are apostles, and if we do not want our work to be in vain, but to be effective, there is only one method that will not fail: prayer. We must pray with faith, hope, charity, humility, devotion and reverence.....work can be prayer.....if we offer to the Lord all the actions that we perform, so that they might serve His glory.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the CrossDo you want to be totally united to the Crucified? If you are serious about this, you will be present, by the power of the Cross, at every front, at every place of sorrow, bringing to those who suffer comfort, healing, and salvation.
St. John BoscoHealth is God's great gift, and we must spend it entirely for Him. Our eyes should see only for God, our feet walk only for Him, our hands labor for Him alone; in short, our entire body should serve God while we still have the time. Then, when He shall take our health and we shall near our last day, our conscience will not reproach us for having misused it.
