"At the end of our life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal.
You will regret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend or a parent."
- Barbara Bush
Look back and thank God.
Look forward and trust God.
Look around and serve God.
Look within and find God.
"You can't go to heaven hating somebody. Forgive now. Be compassionate now. Be patient now. Be grateful now. Love Jesus and Mary now. Accept God's will now."
— Mother Angelica
"The most deadly poison of our times is indifference. And this happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise Him to the greatest extent of our powers."
— St. Maximilian Kolbe
"Preserve the warmth of the family, because the warmth of the whole world cannot make up for it."
— St. Charbel Makhlouf
"Oh, how painful it is to Me that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy Communion. I wait for souls, and they are indifferent toward Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely, and they distrust Me. I want to lavish My graces on them, and they do not want to accept them. They treat Me as a dead object, whereas My Heart is full of love and mercy. In order that you may know at least some of My pain, imagine the most tender of mothers who has great love for her children, while those children spurn her love. Consider her pain. No one is in a position to console her. This is but a pale image and likeness of My love." - Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska, 1447
“Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”-Matthew 18:4
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Truly, this week is holy,
for the Son of God
embraced His passion.
He suffered and died that
we might die to our sins,
and receive the gift
of Eternal Life.
"The school of Christ is the school of love. In the last day, when the general examination takes place ... Love will be the whole syllabus." - St. Robert Bellarmine
"Act as if everything depended on you; trust as if everything depended on God."
— St. Ignatius of Loyola
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
