The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
Prayer is an act of love; words are not needed. Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
“I understood that love comprises all vocations – that love is everything, and because it is eternal, embraces all times and places.”
“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”
“Let us love, since that is what our hearts were made for.”
“don’t wait until tomorrow to begin becoming a saint.”
“Strive to preserve your heart in peace; let no event of this world disturb it.”
“The endurance of darkness is the preparation for great light.”
Faith “is like the feet wherewith the soul journeys to God, and love is the guide that directs it.”
