'I am surprised that after telling me in your first letter that you will stay where you are as long as I wish and that you are leaving yourself entirely in my hands to do with you all that I wish (the best frame of mind you could have), you would write me quite the opposite five days later. You must have a very changeable mind. Because this is a temptation, you must try to recognize it and to humble yourself for such weakness. Let your knowledge of it make you resolve never to follow your mind's whims. This is extremely important for you.'

'Mary sacrificed all to God; she needed Him alone. From this day forward, I shall follow her example: the Lord alone will be my portion. Why have I come here if not to love Our Lord with all my heart. As proof of my love for him, I must suffer and generously sacrifice everything to him, as Mary did. Courage, my soul, through prayer we can do all that is asked of us. The heart of Jesus is there: let us knock.'

'The best of attitudes is humility.
The best of occupations, work.
The best of sentiments, pity.
The best of cares, justice.
The best of pains, that which a man takes to make peace between two enemies.
The best of sorrows, sorrow for sin.
The best of chararacters, generosity.

'Go into street and square, into palace and house, into city and countryside, into tribunal and court of law, and even into the temple of God. Where will you find virtue? "Alas!" cries Salvianus, "except for a very little number who flee evil, what is the assembly of Christians if not a sink of vice?" All that we can find everywhere is selfishness, ambition, gluttony, and luxury. Is not the greater portion of men defiled by the vice of impurity, and is not Saint John right in saying, "The whole world - if something so foul may be called - "is seated in wickedness?" I am not the one who is telling you; reason obliges you to believe that out of those who are living so badly, very few are saved.'

'O my soul, imitate Jesus faithfully: He is gentle and humble of heart. Those who are humble of heart will be glorified. How beautiful the heavenly crown will be for those who are genuinely humble despite outward humiliations, those who follow the humility of the Savior in every way.'

'One day Jesus Christ appeared to Sister Magdalene Orsini, who had been suffering a heavy affliction for a long time, under the form of a crucifix, to comfort her by the remembrance of his Passion, and to animate her to bear her cross with patience. She said to him: "But Thou, my Lord, wast only three hours on the cross, while I have suffered this pain for many years." Then our Lord from the cross replied: "Ignorant creature that Thou art! from the first moment that I was in the womb of Mary I suffered all that I had afterwards to suffer in my death." "Christ," says Novarinus, "even in the womb of his mother, had the impression of the cross on his mind; so that no sooner was he born than he might be said to have the principality on his shoulders." So, then, My Redeemer, throughout Thy whole life I shall find Thee nowhere but on the cross: "Lord, I find Thee nowhere but on the cross," said Dragone Ostiense. Yes, for the cross on which Jesus Christ died was ever in his mind to torment him. Even whilst sleeping, says Bellarmine, the sight of the cross was present to the heart of Jesus: "Christ had his cross always before his eyes. When he slept, his heart watched; nor was it ever free from the sight of the cross."

'May you no longer have any liberty except to love Him. May no other light illumine your soul, no other aim absorb your heart than that of His pure love which keeps Him a prisoner in the Blessed Sacrament. You will ask Him, through the merits of this captivity, to set free His poor prisoners in Purgatory.'

'Model your hearts on that of the divine Infant, that He may vivify you, encourage you, inflame you, sanctify you, render you capable of doing great things for the glory of God; and may the holy Virgin keep you pure with the precious balm of her virtues! Amen.'

'Always begin your prayer with one of the mysteries of the Passion, and engage your soul in it by pious soliloquies, without making an effort to meditate. If God afterwards attract you to the silence of love and faith, do not disturb the peace of your soul by any explicit reflections. I advise you, above all things, to ground yourself in humility and in the hatred of yourself. Of this we can never do enough.'

'The good works which we do of our own will, are not so meritorious as those that are done under obedience.'

St. Philip Neri

Mortification of the will is a great and necessary habit! Simply doing what we do not want to do for God's sake is so helpful for the soul! Smiley
