“O Jesus, I am locking myself in Your most merciful Heart as in a fortress, impregnable against the missiles of my enemies.” —St. Faustina
Every second lived is worth each second of the pain.
St. Maria Goretti, example of forgiveness, pray for us.
“Why is there never enough time? Why does time sometimes seem to drag and at other times fly? Because in our very essence, our immortal souls were not created for time. You will live forever. Life is our time to figure out where we will spend eternity.” —Franciscan University Youth Conference Quote
“Marriage is the key of moderation and the harmony of desires, the seal of a deep friendship… the unique drink from a fountain enclosed, inaccessible to those without. United in the flesh, one in spirit, they urge each other on by the goad of their mutual love. For marriage does not remove God, but brings all closer to Him, for it is God Himself who draws us to it.” —St. Gregory of Nazianzus
“What one finds in the [Carthusian] Charterhouse, then, is not a collection of great mystics and men of dazzling spiritual gifts, but simple and rugged souls whose mysticism is all swallowed up in a faith too big and too simple for visions. The more spectacular gifts have been left for lesser spirits, who move in the world of action.” —Thomas Merton
There is an incredible beauty
in having someone simply understand you.
“Dear children! At this time, in a special way I call you: ‘pray with the heart’. Little children, you speak much and pray little. Read and meditate on Sacred Scripture, and may the words written in it be life for you. I encourage and love you, so that in God you may find your peace and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.” —The Blessed Virgin Mary, February 25th, 2012, in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina
“There is nothing in nature that compares to the beauty of the Blessed Virgin Mary.” —
