"Be at peace with your own soul, then heaven and earth will be at peace with you."
"We must love our nothingness and think only of the All which is infinitely loveable."
~ St Therese of Lisieux
No one is so wrong as the man who knows all the answers.
Act in a way that all those who come in contact with you will go away joyful. Sow happiness about you because you have received much from God.
During painful times, when you feel a terrible void, think how the capacity of your soul is being enlarged so that it can receive God– becoming as it were, infinite as God is infinite.
~Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity
As a light bulb brightens when connected to a generator, so are you when you are joined in communication with God in prayer. Prayer is the foundation of the spiritual life.
~Francois-Xavier Nguyen Van Thuân
The heart is free which is held by no love other than the love of God.
~ Saint Bonaventure
We must acknowledge that God is happiness itself or we will never know what true happiness is!
The soul is in itself a most lovely and perfect image of God.
~ Saint John of the Cross
