There's nothing like prayer. Cheesy


'He who dwells continually within his own heart is detached from the attractions of this world, for he lives in the Spirit and cannot know the desires of the flesh. Such a man henceforward walks up and down within the fortress of the virtues which keep guard at all the gates of his purity. The assaults of the demons are now ineffective against him, even though the arrows of sensual desire reach as far as the doorways of his senses.'

'Do not neglect the practice of the virtues; if you do, your spiritual knowledge will decrease, and when famine occurs you will go down into Egypt (cf. Gen. 41:57; 46:6).'

'Sometimes in scripture prosperity is spoken of as light, and worldly misfortune as night.  So it is said through the psalmist, "Like its darkness, so also its light." holy men despise and trample on the prosperity of this world, so also they trample down and endure its misfortune with a great loftiness of mind.  They compel both the prosperity and the misfortune of the world to serve them, saying, "Like its darkness, so also its light," as if to say clearly, 'Just as the sadness of the world does not disturb the strength of our purpose, so also its pleasantness does not corrupt our strength.''

Don't sow your desires in someone Else's garden; just cultivate your own as best you can; Don't long to be other than what you are, but desire to be thoroughly what you are. Direct your thoughts to being very good at that, and to bearing crosses, little or great, that you will find there.
Believe me, this the most important and least understood point to the spiritual life. We all love according to what is our own taste; few people like what is according to their duty or to God's liking. What is the use in building castles in Spain when we have to live in France.

Come to me , all of you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.
Matthew 11:28-30

Sacred Heart of Jesus please hear our prayers.

Who will set a guard over my mouth,
and upon my lips an effective seal,
That I may not fail through them,
That my tongue may not destroy me.

The Divine Heart is an ocean full of good things, wherein poor souls can cast all their needs; it is an ocean full of joy to drown all our sadness, an ocean of humility to drown our folly, an ocean of mercy to those in distress, an ocean of love in which to submerge our poverty.

In times of desolation, God conceals himself from us so that we can discover for ourselves what we are without Him.

'We must be content with and conformed to His most Holy Will, stripped and destitute of pleasure, friends, consolation, talents, and aware of our lack of virtue.'
