Finding God in All Things
Pray as if God will take care of all; act as if all is up to you.
Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words.
Teach us to give and not to count the cost.
For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who disbelieve, no amount of proof is sufficient.Discouragement is not from God
The glory of God is humankind fully alive.
All the things in this world are gifts of God, created for us, to be the means by which we can come to know him better, love him more surely, and serve him more faithfully.
God will not be outdone in generosity.
He who goes about to reform the world must begin with himself, or he loses his labor.
He who carries God in his heart bears Heaven with him wherever he goes.
For those who love, nothing is too difficult, especially when it is done for the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You have given it all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and grace. That is enough for me.
Laugh and grow strong.
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost.
To conquer himself is the greatest victory that man can gain.
Sin is unwillingness to trust that what God wants for me is only my deepest happiness.
It is not hard to obey when we love the one whom we obey.
If God causes you to suffer much, it is a sign that He certainly intends to make you a saint.
If our church is not marked by caring for the poor, the oppressed, the hungry, we are guilty of heresy.
Teach us, Good Lord, to give and not count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not to ask for any reward save that of knowing that we do thy will.
Occupy yourself in beholding and bewailing your own imperfections rather than contemplating the imperfections of others.
SPIRITUAL EXERCISES whereby to conquer oneself, and order one’s life, without being influenced in one’s decision by any inordinate affection.
We must speak to God as a friend speaks to his friend, servant to his master; now asking some favor, now acknowledging our faults, and communicating to Him all that concerns us, our thoughts, our fears, our projects, our desires, and in all things seeking His counsel.
He who is not getting better is getting worse.
In the case of those who are making progress from good to better, the good angel touches the soul gently, lightly, sweetly, as a drop of water enters a sponge, while the evil spirit touches it sharply, with noise and disturbance, like a drop of water falling on a rock.
Let us work as if success depended upon ourselves alone, but with heartfelt conviction that we are doing nothing, and God everything.
Truth always ends by victory; it is not unassailable, but invincible.
Ite, inflammate omnia.
God inclines to shower His graces upon us, but our perverted will is a barrier to His generosity.
A person with imprecise ideas can understand little and be of less help to others.
God freely created us so that we might know, love, and serve him in this life and be happy with him forever. God’s purpose in creating us is to draw forth from us a response of love and service here on earth, so that we may attain our goal of everlasting happiness with him in heaven.
God gives each one of us sufficient grace ever to know His holy will, and to do it fully.
The more completely we focus our attention on our Creator and Lord, the less chance there is of our being distracted by creatures.
May God our Lord never let me harm anyone when I cannot help him!
The acknowledgment of and gratitude for favors and gifts received is loved and esteemed in Heaven and on earth.
Receive, Lord, all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my whole will.
May it please Christ our Lord to grant us true humility and abnegation of will and judgment, so that we may deserve to begin to be His disciples.
True, I am in love with suffering, but I do not know if I deserve the honor.
After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the Devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if Satan’s temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he’ll have an incentive to leave you alone.
One must wage war against his predominant passion and not retreat until, with God’s help, he has been victorious.
May the perfect grace and eternal love of Christ our Lord be our never-failing protection and help.
What seems to me white, I will believe black if the hierarchical Church so defines.
Remember that bodily exercise, when it is well ordered, as I have said, is also prayer by means of which you can please God our Lord.
Be generous to the poor orphans and those in need. The man to whom our Lord has been liberal ought not to be stingy. We shall one day find in Heaven as much rest and joy as we ourselves have dispensed in this life.
God our Lord would have us look to the Giver and love Him more than His gift, keeping Him always before our eyes, in our hearts, and in our thoughts.
It is proper to ask for sorrow with Christ in sorrow, anguish with Christ in anguish, tears and deep grief because of the great affliction Christ endures for me.
We must put aside all judgment of our own, and keep the mind ever ready and prompt to obey in all things the true Spouse of Christ our Lord, our holy Mother, the hierarchical Church.
