‘A virtuous life consists in mortifying vices, sins, bad thoughts, and evil affections, and in exercising ourselves in the acquisition of holy virtues.’
“Because God has made us for Himself, our hearts are restless until they rest in Him.”
“I will go anywhere and do anything in order to communicate the love of Jesus to those who do not know Him or have forgotten Him.”
–St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
If you want God to hear your prayers, hear the voice of the poor. If you wish God to anticipate your wants, provide those of the needy without waiting for them to ask you. Especially anticipate the needs of those who are ashamed to beg. To make them ask for alms is to make them buy it.
— St. Thomas of Villanova
“Act as if everything depended on you; trust as if everything depended on God.”
― Ignatius of Loyola
“The perfect family doesn’t exist, nor is there a perfect husband or a perfect wife, and let’s not talk about the perfect mother-in-law! It’s just us sinners. A healthy family life requires frequent use of three phrases: ‘May I? Thank you, and I’m sorry’ and never, never, never end the day without making peace.”
— Pope Francis
Accept the risen Jesus into your life. Even if you have been far away, take a small step towards him: he awaits you with open arms.
