He…that leaves off prayer will leave off loving Jesus Christ. Prayer is the blessed furnace in which the fire of holy love is enkindled and kept alive. ~ St. Alphonsus de Ligouri
Let nothing disturb you, let nothing dismay you, all things are passing, God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
He who has God finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices.
It is love alone that gives worth to all things.
Accustom yourself constantly to make many acts of love for they enkindle and melt the soul.
Pain is never permanent.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself. ~ St. Teresa of Avilia
Prayer is nothing else but union with God. When one has a heart that is pure and united with God, he is given a kind of serenity and sweetness that makes him estatic, a light that surrounds him with marvelous brightness. – St. John Marie Vianney
You don’t need to wallow in guilt. Wallow in the mercy of God. When you are guilty, say so to God through a confessor. Acknowledge your problems and sins. The moment you have stated them, God puts His Hand over you and you are a newborn babe. – St. John Marie Vianney
