"A servant who follows his master, if he be asked where he goes, might reply that he does not go, that he only follows: because it is his master's will and not his, which determines the place to which he walks."

"Feed upon the will of God, and drink the chalice of Jesus with your eyes shut, so that you may not see what is inside; let it be enough for you to know that it is the cup of your sweet Jesus. Above all, form to yourself a constant habit of resignation by making frequently such acts as these: O beloved Will! O Most Holy Will of God, I love Thee!....The food of my Jesus was to do the will of His Father, mine shall be the same."
St. Paul of the Cross

The prayer of the sick person is his patience and his acceptance of his sickness for the love of Jesus Christ. Make sickness itself a prayer, for there is none more powerful, save martyrdom.

'If it be the duty of a Christian to pray to God before meals, he is not less bound to thank him after having made use of the gifts which came from his bountiful hand. It is, therefore, necessary to make, after every meal, a short but fervent act of thanksgiving.'

St. Jean-Baptiste de la Salle

Amen!

'Wisdom is not only to perceive the natural consequence of things, but also to accept as our due the malice of those who wrong us. People who go no further than the first kind of wisdom become proud, whereas those who attain the second become humble.'

"When trees are much loaded with fruit, the quantity weighs down, nay, sometimes breaks the branches; whereas, those which are not so laden remain straight; and when the ears of corn are full, they hang down, so that the stalk seems ready to break; but when they stand up, it is a sign there is little in them. Just so it is as to spiritual things. They who bear no fruit continually shoot upward, but they who are laden with the fruit of grace and good works are always hanging down their heads in a humble posture; they make the favors they have received from God a subject of further humiliation and fear."
St. Dorotheus

Saint Dorotheus please pray for us that we persevere in humility and gratitude.

The whole science of the saints consists in knowing and following the will of God; because then only can a man be perfect indeed, when, raising himself above all other things, he subjects himself to eternal truth and justice, for, since man was made after the image and likeness of God, who is eternal truth and justice, he cannot expect to attain either perfection or happiness except by conformity to his divine original. On the other hand , the most dangerous of all temptations are those which lead us to follow the suggestions of our own hearts and thoughts, instead of the will of God. The pleasure which a man seeks in the gratification of his own inclinations is quickly changed into bitterness, and leaves nothing behind but the regret of having been ignorant of the secret of true beatitude and of the way of the saints."

Amen. Cheesy

'One who trusts in the leadership of Christ renounces the Enemy and his angels, that is to say, all manner of magical superstition which depends on the emissaries of Satan. Moreoever, the Christian renounces all the Devil's works -- cults, idols, omens, auguries, pomps and shows, robberies and fraud, sins of the flesh and drunkenness, dancing and lying. Such things -- not to mention much else -- separated you from the Lord and allied you with the devil. They are the chains of the Serpent, loaded on the souls of men to lead them to the prison of hell.

Only when a man has rid himself of these evils, and cast off the chains from his back and thrown them, so to speak, in the face of the Enemy, can he proclaim his act of faith with sincerity.'

St. Niceta of Remesiana

Ask the animals, and they will teach you;
The birds of the air, and they will teach you;
Or the plants of the earth, and they will teach you;
And the fish of the sea, will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
Job 12:7-10
