Just a note for folks: It's preferred not to have quotes from Mother Teresa here. There are too many serious issues regarding some of her work and quotes. Please see the recent reminder in the announcements.

I think these days, people don’t have time for people.  They are always checking their phones, tablets, or whatever internet social media or games.  People don’t turn off their phones in movie houses, church and family get together.  Instead of kids playing and talking with each other, all are busy with their games with phones.  No wonder kids don’t have social skill unless it’s through the internet.  They don’t know how to play, get the sun on their faces, skin their knees, climb trees, run and play tag, use their imagination to entertain themselves…. To READ and WRITE COMPLETE AND CORRECTLY SPELLED SENTENCES!!! Just looking at people engage in their phones, etc. makes me dizzy, stressful and I feel for them.  Do they still get to improve themselves? Or converse with their family and friends face to face? Can you put your head on social sites'  shoulder when your down? or can these social sites hug you?  Cry  I wonder... would they survive a day without any electronic device in their hands?  Roll Eyes Grin

Just a reminder again, to review the announcements folks and you can always PM to ask a question about the forum or take the time to get adjusted to the forum. Cheesy

Please stay on topic and quote the saints who provide good examples and good quotes rather than folks with bad examples that have a few good quotes.

Also we had some technical difficulties tonight, let me know if you have any persistent troubles, it should be only temporary.

"Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel. Go and find him when your strength and patience are giving out, when you feel lonely and helpless. Say to him: 'You know well what is happening, my dear Jesus. I have only you. Come to my aid....' And then go your way. And don't worry about knowing how you are going to manage. It is enough to have told our Good Lord. He has an excellent memory."

It makes me think of a story I heard once about an quiet old man before Our Lord in the chapel.

'I sleep and my heart watcheth.'

I like this story, I can see it in my mind.

The quote also had me reflect upon Saint Bernadette, when she was bed ridden she called it her "little white chapel".

Yes, a little white chapel in which she had pasted holy cards of the saints.

'Self-control is the generic name for all of the virtues; therefore, one who exercises self-control must do so in all things. For just as the whole of a man's body becomes disfigured when one part, no matter how small it may be, is removed from it, so also he who neglects one virtue without realizing it destroys all of his self-control.'

"O my God, I do not ask you to keep me from suffering, but to be with me in affliction. Teach me to seek you as my only comforter; sustain my faith; strengthen my hope; purify my love. Grant me the grace to recognize your hand in the midst of suffering and to want no other comforter than you."

St. Bernadette, pray for us!

'When I see that God is ever ready to give us all the interior and exterior aids necessary for our salvation, and that he observes our deeds solely for our own good; when, on the other hand, I see man continually occupied in useless things, contrary to himself and of no value; and that at the hour of death God will say to him: "What is there, O man, that I could have done for thee which I have not done?" and that man will clearly know this to be true; I believe that he will have to render a stricter account for this than for all other sins, and I am amazed and cannot understand how man can be so mad as to neglect a thing of such vast and extreme importance.'

One of the most moving phrases for me is this:

"What is there, O man, that I could have done for thee which I have not done?"

The Twelfth Prayer of St. Bridget

O Jesus! Mirror of Truth, symbol of unity, bond of charity, remember the multitude of wounds with which Thou wast afflicted from head to foot, torn and reddened by the spilling of Thy adorable Blood. O great and universal pain, which Thou didst suffer in Thy virginal flesh for love of us! Sweetest Jesus! What is there that Thou couldst have done for us which Thou has not done!

May the fruit of Thy suffering be renewed in my soul by the faithful remembrance of Thy Passion, and may Thy love increase in my heart each day, until I see Thee in eternity: Thou Who art the treasure of every real good and every joy, which I beg Thee to grant me, O Sweetest Jesus, in heaven. Amen.

The 15 Prayers of St. Bridget are wonderful prayers, one cannot say enough good of them!

That is how much Our God loves us Shin!  crucifix

“O man, created in such great dignity, why dost thou lose thyself in things so vile? If thou shouldst consider well, thou wouldst easily see that all worldly things which thou desirest are as nothing when compared to those spiritual goods which God gives thee even in this life, which is so full of ignorance."
