'He who loves Me, says the Lord, will keep My commandments (cf. John 14:15, 23); and "this is My commandment, that you love one another" (John 15:12). Thus he who does not love his neighbor fails to keep the commandment, and so cannot love the Lord.'

'As those thick vapours which rise from damp and wet places, cover the heavens with clouds and prevent the rays of the sun from reaching us; so also from surfeiting and drunkenness, smoke and vapour as it were rise within us, that obscure our reason, and deprive us of the rays of divine light'

'As I have often told you, there is nothing so vile as the impure soul. There was once a saint who had asked the good God to show him one; and he saw the poor soul like a dead beast that has been dragged through the streets in the hot sun for a week.'

'According to St. Bonaventure, all the angels in heaven unceasingly call out to her: "Holy, holy, holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God." They greet her countless times each day with the angelic greeting, "Hail, Mary", while prostrating themselves before her, begging her as a favour to honour them with one of her requests. According to St. Augustine, even St. Michael, though prince of all the heavenly court, is the most eager of all the angels to honour her and lead others to honour her. At all times he awaits the privilege of going at her word to the aid of one of her servants.'

'"Most excellent lady, were you not sanctified in your mothers' womb? How was it that you said these things? Were you not free from every sin and filled with every grace?"

"Listen, Elizabeth. Undoubtedly, daughter, I was such as you say. However, you should know this in truth, that at that time I considered myself vile and wretched and unworthy of every grace of God's, just as you now consider yourself, and even more so. And so I was always asking God that he would deign to infuse into me his grace and strength."'

The Blessed Virgin, to St. Elizabeth, from 'The Revelations of St. Elizabeth of Toss'

'We are to love God for Himself, because of a twofold reason; nothing is more reasonable, nothing more profitable. When one asks, "Why should I love God?" he may mean, "What is lovely in God?" or "What shall I gain by loving God?" In either case, the same sufficient cause of love exists, namely, God Himself.'

'Perceiving the Christian religion tottering this long time, the primary means of salvation neglected; and being moved by the manifest danger and perdition of the flock of Christ, we recur to the doctrine of the Fathers, ordaining nothing new, nothing of our own invention; form the full conviction of the necessity of embracing the exclusive and primary path of salvation -- the trite path of the Saints: because we are not aware of any other entrance, for either flock or pastors, into the kingdom of heaven than that which is pointed out by him who said, I am the gate; whosever will enter through me, shall find security and pasture; and what we find preached by the Apostles, and observed by the Fathers.'
